Raonic Splits From Coach Ljubicic

Canadian makes online announcement

Milos Raonic announced on Thursday that he and Ivan Ljubicic will no longer be working together. The Canadian, No. 14 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, has been working with the former No. 3 for over two years.

Raonic shared the news on his personal Instagram account:

“I wanted to take a moment to reflect. On a year full of many tough challenges, the biggest being myself. In 2015 I faced my biggest challenges yet, in regards to my health. My team, family, loved ones, supporters and fans have stood by me strong through the toughest of these moments and for that I am grateful. Thank you!

I have learned many important lessons throughout this year. Many of which I am sure will assist me in achieving my goals. I have plenty of challenges ahead of and hard work that I look forward to thriving in.

Looking forward to 2016, a year that I believe I can make big strides towards my goals and to the ambitions that I would like to fulfill.

I’d like to thank Ivan Ljubicic for the tremendous amount of support, knowledge and understanding he has given me. The decision has been made that we will not continue our professional relationship in the upcoming year, we will remain close friends and I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

As for the rest of my team, we will continue charging toward our goals. Training hard, training smart.

I can’t wait to be back competing.

Much gratitude,

Milos”

Raonic will kick off his 2016 season at the ATP World Tour 250 event in Brisbane.
