Milos Raonic didn't just have the best year ever by a Canadian singles tennis player.

He didn't just become the first Canadian male to crack the top 40 in the ATP world rankings, never mind finishing the year at a career-best No. 13.

And he didn't just win two ATP tournaments, increasing his career total to three, and bank nearly $1.2 million in earnings after having his previous season derailed by major hip surgery.
