He has done very little in the major events. He has the game to bully weaker opponents, but when it really matters he has been found wanting.
You go on and on about his age, yet by that age Federer was a Slam winner, so too Nadal and Djokovic. It's yet another excuse.
Your logic is flawed, times have changed, tennis evolves very rapidly, you attacking Milos shows how pathetic you are nit picking at a 22 year old Canadian kid who lost to the seven time French Open champion.
I didn't think Milos would win today and he probably knew he wouldn't either. But Milos tried his best and he lost to a great clay court player.
And you attacking a 22 year old kid who is ranked number 13 in the world is foolish and pathetic. You think Milos just got there to be 13 in the world? This kid worked his ass off training getting up at six o' clock in the morning to play tennis before he went to school in Toronto.
Milos has done Canada proud, he's a hero here he's gotten the Canadian media to pay attention to tennis. Milos also got Canada into the semifinals of the Davis Cup for the first time.
Tennis has changed the top 3 players Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic are legends of the game they are the gold standard in men's tennis.
People just think the young players are going to magically knock them off it only comes with TIME and EXPERIENCE.
Every time, these young players like Milos Raonic plays Nadal he LEARNS something.
Milos is building his CONSISTENCY he reached the semifinals of Barcelona for the second time on his WORST SURFACE.
He's doing great, you need to back off with your crude behaviour.
