Raonic vows to come back stronger after Wimbledon defeat


Milos Raonic vowed to leave no stone unturned in order to take his game to another level after losing to Andy Murray in straights sets in Sunday's Wimbledon final.

Raonic, playing his first grand slam final, was unable to deny Murray a third major title as the home favourite triumphed 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2) at the All England Club.

The 25-year-old, the first Canadian man to reach a major final, felt he could do no more against the brilliant Brit and will now go back to the drawing board.

He said: "I think I did the best I could. I tried to put the things together. I tried coming forward, putting pressure on him. He was playing much better than me off the baseline, he was more effective there.

"I was probably a little too passive to start the match on his service games. But then I tried to turn that around, give myself two looks [break points], but didn't make the most of it.

"I tried to put together what I could, fought. It just didn't work out."

The sixth seed added: "I'm going to work on everything. I'm not going to leave any stone unturned. I'm going to try to get myself back in this position, try to be better in this position.

"I'm going to try to get fitter, stronger. I'm going to try to improve my return game, improve my serve. I can improve there. Improve my efficiency coming forward. 

"There's not one thing that I'm not going to try to improve. Obviously now we have to focus on what the most important thing is to put as much attention as I can, because I can't focus on everything the whole time. 

"We'll discuss that as a team and we'll try to take it from there."
Raonic added that the plans to hold talks with John McEnroe with a view to keeping the legendary American as part of his coaching team.
