• Raonic to be coached by Ljubicic

    6/10/13 4:20 AM | Johan Lindahl
    Raonic to be coached by Ljubicic Canadian Milos Raonic has picked up a new coach, with former player Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia to guide the promising world No. 16. The pair will work out of Monte Carlo where they both live.

    Montenegrian-born Raonic split with Spaniard Galo Blanco a month ago and took on Ljubicic on a trial basis in the run-up to the French Open. The 22-year-old turned in a poor performance, losing in the third round to Kevin Anderson.

    "Being coached by Ivan will really offer a new dimension to my game," said Raonic. "He brings such a vast knowledge of the game and his recent experience on Tour is a major plus for my development.

    "We both come from aggressive styles of play so he can definitely understand the mentality I have on court and areas where I can improve. I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can from him and to continue to grow my game in the best way possible."

    Ljubicic retired in 2012 after once standing third on the ATP during his 14-year-career. He won 10 titles including the Indian Wells Masters in 2010 and a Davis Cup for Croatia in 2005.

Good move by Milos.

Ljubicic was a top 10 player* whose playing style is more in line with Raonic than Blanco's.

More importantly, Ljuby had good mental strength which is Milos' biggest weakness.

* albeit during the weak era

Great news for Milos. He needed a bump up like this.

Hmmm. Hope Milos can pick it up at Wimbly.
