MELBOURNE, Â AUSTRALIA â€“ January 23, 2011 – Following his third round win over World No. 10 Mikhail Youzhny Â in Melbourne, Â Tennis Canada held a media conference callÂ on Sunday morning (Saturday evening in the United States) for Milos Raonic.
On his Australian Open experience: I felt Â it was a big experience for me as a development standpoint. Â I feel through the last three matches here in the main draw especially playing the three Â out of five (sets) to beat the top guys, itâ€™s more of challenge, but itâ€™s something Iâ€™ve been dealing with really well and its something that has an impact on my game and my confidence and my belief. I feel like my level has come through and my game is coming together. I feel like Iâ€™m on my way to reaching my goals .
On his match against Mikhail Youzhny: As far as yesterdayâ€™s (Saturdayâ€™s) match goes .. it was a good day for me. I was able to deal with the diversity. Â I know that he (Youzhny) plays really well on the return game so I know I wouldnâ€™t Â have as much ease holding my serve as I did with the first two matches. So it was a big thing for me to play from the baseline and be able to break him so this was a big success for me proving that I can do alot of damage even from the baseline. And other than that everything that has come with the win have been a lot of fun itâ€™s been very exciting to go through this… itâ€™s nice to have this experience early..it will be a big learning point for the rest of my career.
