With all the bad (i.e. seriously messed up) news in the world, there is cause for some all-Canadian celebration.
Today, Milos Raonic made Canadian tennis history by beating tennis great Roger Federer 6-3, 6-7 (3), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 to advance to the Wimbledon final for the first time.
The 25-year-old from Thornhill, Ont. became the first player representing Canada to reach a Grand Slam men’s singles final.
That’s a pretty huge deal when you consider that Federer is a seven-time Wimbledon champion.
Raonic had won only two of the 11 previous matches between the two.
Raonic moves on to Sunday’s final, where he’ll face the winner of the other semifinal between No. 2 Andy Murray, who won Wimbledon in 2013, and No. 10 Tomas Berdych.
Previously in Canadian tennis, Eugenie Bouchard reached the Wimbledon women’s final in 2014.
