Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard bagged Canada’s top tennis honors after being named as the country’s male and female tennis player of the year respectively.

Raonic, 23, was rewarded for his glorious outing this season, where he reached the semifinals of the Wimbledon Championships and a consistent performance throughout saw him seal a berth in the ATP World Tour Finals. Consequently, the lanky Canadian rose to a career-best sixth spot in the men’s rankings.

Earlier, Eugenie Bouchard had also bagged the award a couple of days ago. 20-year-old Bouchard wedged many eyes by finishing as the runner-up at Wimbledon, besides making it to the last-four stages of the Australian Open and the French Open 2014.

Meanwhile, Vasek Pospisil was named Canada’s ‘Doubles Player of the Year’ for his Wimbledon triumph alongside American Jack Sock.

“I am so impressed by how Milos has composed himself throughout his career and how he is able to get better and better every year,” CBC Sports quoted Kelly Murumets, President of Tennis Canada.

“He continues to outdo himself and he put together an extraordinary season, one of the best for a Canadian tennis player ever. He and Vasek are both excellent role models to our growing base of tennis fans in Canada, and I wish them both the best in their very bright futures.

“Congratulations to Milos and Vasek on absolutely incredible years.”
