Milos Raonic praises the Davis Cup triumph as “the finest moment in Canadian tennis.”
Milos Raonic, 31, a former world No. 3 player, hasn’t competed in a tour-level match in more than a year due to injury, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been following the tennis world’s events.
In fact, he was among the first to congratulate his countrymen on their historic Davis Cup victory.The former Canadian stalwart praised Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov on Twitter after their team’s 2-0 victory over Australia on Sunday gave Canada its first Davis Cup in the 109-year history of the competition.
In tennis, many Canadians have achieved a lot “Raonic composed. “Winning the top prize demonstrates the power of Canadian tennis on the global team stage.”I hope we get to see this happen many more times! This is the greatest moment in Canadian tennis.”
The two-time Grand Slam finalist Raonic, who was a key member of Canada’s Davis Cup team from 2010 to 2018 and amassed an 18-6 record in singles and doubles, helped set up Canada for this opportunity.
Due to a back injury, he was compelled to withdraw from the 2019 Davis Cup Finals, the year Canada made its first Davis Cup final appearance.
