Milos Raonic was named Tennis Canada's male player of the year on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old from Thornhill also won the award in 2011, when he had a breakout year and won his first career ATP title. He followed that up with two more tournament wins this year, the Aircel Chennai Open in India and the SAP Open in San Jose, Calif.

Raonic finished the season ranked 13th in the world, a best ever for a Canadian male singles player.

All the support I've received this year from the Canadian fans has been incredible and I'm excited to see the growth of our sport continue in Canada."

Raonic was also named Tennis Canada's singles player of the year.
