Raonic Overcomes Compatriot in All-Canadian Final at Citi Open

Milos Raonic

The Canadian Milos Raonic moved a step higher in his bid to become a significant Top 10 player by winning his first ATP 500 title at the Citi Open in Washington, DC. He bested his compatriot, Vasek Pospisil, in the first-ever all-Canadian ATP final. Pospisil, who was forced to play his quarterfinal and semifinal matches yesterday, due to weather, seemed very much gassed in the first set. He rallied in the second to make a match of it, but Raonic, the more seasoned player, prevailed to win it 6-1, 6-4.

It was Pospisil’s first ATP final. Raonic now has six titles to his credit.
