Last night’s match between Milos Raonic of Canada and Kei Nishikori of Japan felt like a referendum on the future and viability of power tennis. Raonic is 6’5’’, serves at about 140+ MPH, has a booming forehand, and is generally improving in all aspects of his game, especially his touch at the net. He doesn’t have a great backhand, but that is normally not an issue for...

US OPEN SCENE: No muss, no fuss for Raonic's hair

NEW YORK (AP) What's the secret of Milos Raonic's perfect hair? He's not telling but maybe his slick, jet-black, Cary Grant style will speak for itself.

Next generation seeks to break through at U.S. Open

  Two 23-year-olds, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov, broke through to their first major semifinals at Wimbledon.

Raonic Set to Take on Hewitt in Round of 16 match at Citi Open

The men’s and women’s finals are set at Wimbledon, and much promise and drama are in store.

Things have started to slow down a little bit at Roland Garros as we move to get the semifinals set. Novak Djokovic bludgeoned his way past Milos Raonic in one quarterfinal, and in a somewhat unexpected turn, Ernests Gulbis took down Tomas Berdych in the other.
