Milos Raonic is continuing to cruise through Australia, defeating the 21st seed Viktor Troicki in straight sets (6-2, 6-3, 6-4) today.

The big serving Canadian has won every set he’s played three rounds of the Australian Open. He has yet to lose a match in 2016, defeating Roger Federer in the final of the Brisbane International prior to the start of the Aussie Open.

Raonic appears to be keeping a level head through it all, taking time to acknowledge today’s tragedy in Saskatchewan.

A classy move, to say the least.

Troicki was Raonic’s toughest test, by ranking, so far. He was also the first player in the tournament to break Raonic’s serve, doing so in the third set.

Next up for Raonic is likely the #4 seed, Stan Wawrinka.
