Default Milos offered $25,000 to Thornhill Ontario to fix cracked tennis courts

Milos Raonic is such a nice young man, I read an article that recently he was in his hometown of Thornhill and noticed the tennis courts were cracked. Milos offered to pay $25,000 dollars to fix the courts. A city councillor proposed to name the courts after Milos. However, some other city councillors are upset at the idea. The councillors fear if they accept Milos gift and take the money and name the courts after him it will look tacky.

This has nothing to do with tennis.

A tennis player donating money to his hometown to fix tennis courts to grow the game there has nothing to do with tennis? Ok whatever.

Excuse me? It has everything to do with tennis?

Great gesture by Milos. A real grass roots promotor of the game in Canada.

Ah...Ontario municipal politics...what fun. If even without donating the $25,000 I would still say he deserves to have the court named after him. If they fell it's too early then fic the courts and then rename them when he retires, or something.

Just $25K to fix the courts? Seems quite low. Regardless, the city can handle that in their budget. If Raonic wants to help, he should start by paying Canadian taxes.

Genie Bouchard is still a resident of Canada. I suspect she'll be making a lot more annual income (prize money and sponsorship) than Raonic will ever in his life. Raonic, and rest of his team, should learn a lesson from the 20 year old Bouchard.

I'm not sure this guy has ever made a post on this forum that didn't include a reference to taxes.

They should rename them even without him offering the money. What an incredibly stupid decision this is, and by putting it off they'll lose the entire season. I grew up on hard courts that had a crack so big on one court we could have planted tomatoes in it and we would have killed to have someone donate money to fix them.

Hardcourts are so much better than the plastic grass they've been using in recent years.
It cost much less in maintenance but the ball doesn't bounce at all.
