Milos Raonic on why Canada is seeing success in new Davis Cup format

Big servers are having a ball at the Davis Cup Finals. The indoor hard court combined with the fast Dunlop tennis balls have made conditions ideal for hard-hitters.

You think Milos Raonic has a little case of FOMO?

Raonic is in Boston rehabbing his injured back, and he’s been keeping a close eye on his teammates, who on Thursday clinched Canada’s third-ever Davis Cup semifinals appearance.

“It’s exciting,” Raonic said of Tennis Canada’s success in Madrid. “It’s the best it’s ever been. And I think it’s only going to continue to get better.”

Canada has now won eight of its last nine Davis Cup ties played on hard court, and Raonic believes this new tournament format could be advantageous to his team going forward.

“By the sounds of it, at least at this point, (the Finals) are always going to be on hard court which will always help us,” Raonic said. “And playing two out of three on the same day, for us we have a very deep lineup. We have four guys in the top 100 now, Vasek (Pospisil) belongs to be there too.

“There’s a lot of versatility there.”
