Milos Raonic marked another milestone for Canadian tennis Monday.

After an appearance in the Rogers Cup final Sunday, Raonic, of Thornhill, Ont., moved up three spots on the ATP Tour rankings to No. 10, becoming the first Canadian ever to crack the world top 10.

After a dream run at the Rogers Cup, fellow Canadian Vasek Pospisil moved up 31 spots to No. 40, the highest ranking of his career. The Vernon, B.C., native lost to Raonic in the tournament’s semifinals.

Raonic’s appearance in the final was his first at an ATP Masters 1000 event. The 22-year-old fell to Rafael Nadal in straight sets.

Pospisil, 23, beat hard-hitting John Isner and world No. 6 Tomas Berdych en route to his showdown with Raonic.

Raonic and Pospisil return to the court this week in Cincinnati for the Western and Southern Open.
