Cape Town - Milos Raonic has found a replacement for Carlos Moya, picking former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek as his new coach.
The duo had a practice session together on Monday, and all appears to
have gone well as they have decided to stick together for the 2017
This isn't the first time that Raonic has approached Krajicek - he
reportedly made overtures back in June, though the Dutchman opted to
join Stan Wawrinka at the time, albeit with less than stellar results.
"It's great to have Richard, alongside my team, for the upcoming
season in attempt to reach new and higher goals in 2017," Raonic wrote
on his Instagram account.
"I worked with Richard for few days already
before Australian Open and I am sure Richard with his experience and
being a Wimbledon champion can help me reach my goals. I look forward
doing great things together."
Back in July, Krajicek singled out Raonic as a serious Wimbledon contender over the coming years.
"If he doesn’t win it this year, he’s going to win it in the next two
years. For the next four or five years he’s going to be a contender
Raonic did in fact reach the final at SW19 this year, losing out to Andy Murray in straight sets.
