Rising tennis star and world number eight Milos Raonic was born in Yugoslavia (now Montenegro) but grew up in Ontario, Canada.
The 23 year old has one of the strongest serves in the world. From his 6foot 5 inch height he served more aces per match and won a higher percentage of service games than any other player in 2012. His fastest serve has been clocked at 249.9 km/h (155.3mph) at the Roger’s Cup – which is the fifth fastest serve ever recorded. Novak Djokovic commented that Milos’ serve was, “very powerful, very precise”.
Unfortunately, Milos retired with a thigh injury from the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in London earlier this month before his final round-robin match with Kei Nishikori. Luckily he signed my drawing before that!
