Raonic chats Olympics, Team Canada and a bit of basketball

Milos Raonic has enjoyed a stellar start to the 2016 season, winning a tournament in Brisbane then reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open.


On Friday, Raonic was in Toronto to play in the National Basketball Association’s celebrity game as part of all-star weekend. Prior to that (in the video above) Olympic.ca caught up with the tennis superstar to discuss his love for representing Canada, the Olympic Games, and it being NBA all-star weekend, a bit of basketball.

Raonic wasn’t the only Canadian tennis star to suit up in Toronto. He was joined by Eugenie Bouchard, who also had a strong start to 2016 making it to the WTA final in Hobart. Below are some photos and highlights of Raonic and Bouchard taking to a different kind of court than we’re used to seeing them on each week.
