Item Description

Milos Raonic Signed Tennis Shoe

Milos Raonic, a Canadian professional tennis player, reached a career-high Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) world No. 3 singles ranking on November 21, 2016. Raonic is one of the most successful Canadian singles male players in history. His career-high No. 3 ranking is the highest ever ranking for a Canadian man. He is the first Canadian male in the Open Era to reach the Australian Open semifinals, the French Open quarterfinals, and the Wimbledon final.

His career highlights include a Grand Slam final at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships; two Grand Slam semifinals at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships and 2016 Australian Open; and three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 finals at the 2013 Canadian Open, 2014 Paris Masters, and 2016 Indian Wells Masters. Raonic first gained international acclaim by reaching the fourth round of the 2011 Australian Open as a qualifier, where he was said to be the future of pro tennis. Coupled with his first ATP World Tour title three weeks later, his world ranking rose from No. 152 to No. 37 in one month. He was awarded the 2011 ATP Newcomer of the Year. Raonic is the first player born in the 1990s to win an ATP World Tour title, to be ranked in the top 10, and to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. He has eight ATP World Tour titles.

Raonic is frequently described as having one of the best serves among his contemporaries. Statistically, Raonic is among the strongest servers in the Open Era, winning 91% of service games to rank third all-time. Aided by his serve, he plays an all-court style with an emphasis on short points. Every one of his singles titles has been won on hard courts. His overall winning percentage of 68.5% is one of the highest among currently active players.
