Milos Raonic is the last Canadian standing at the Sony Open.

The 12 seed Raonic knocked off American Jack Sock 6-4, 7-6 (7-1), while fellow countryman Vasek Pospisil lost his match to Slovenian Aljaz Bedene 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 6-3.

Pospisil’s two month losing streak on the ATP circuit continues, as he tries to regain his form after battling nagging back pain.

Pospisil, the 27 seed, remained positive after going down in just under two and half hours in his first ever meeting with Bedene.

“The back felt almost 100%,” he told reporters after the match. “I’m disappointed but I did play well.”

Meanwhile, Raonic moves on to face Spain’s Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the third round on Sunday.
