The 25-year-old Canadian tennis player bested Roger Federer in the semi-finals to become the first Canadian man to appear in the Wimbledon men’s singles final on July 10.

We’re taking a look at Raonic’s Twitter and Instagram channels to get a better feel for how he and the world reacted to his performance this month.

Here’s what Milos is saying:

Sunday was without a doubt an emotional loss for Raonic, who has yet to win a Grand Slam title. He chose to keep it positive online, and is looking ahead to the next tournament.

An amazing performance in the semi-finals earned the Canadian a win over Roger Federer, and also the respect of some prominent Canadian figures.

Here’s what (some famous) fans are saying:

Wimbledon and Canadian team accounts were also tweeting messages of congratulations, along with some highlights.

Raonic’s hair has also been a popular item of discussion online, and has even earned its own Twitter account.

Raonic’s tweets seem to be well edited and carefully crafted. Perhaps he has a social media manager, or is very good at monitoring his own online interactions to build his brand.

Overall, Raonic seems to keep things very professional online. He will make his next appearance at the Rogers Cup in Toronto later this month.
