The man of the hour hasn't had many minutes to himself over the last 24 hours or so.

Suppose that's what happens when you spend time at the top — as certainly was the case for Canadian Milos Raonic on Sunday in Washington, D.C., where he claimed his sixth career ATP World Tour title, beating fellow Canuck Vasek Pospisil in straight sets.

The Citi Open win comes not long after an historic Grand Slam run for Canada. Raonic reached the semifinals at Wimbledon — the deepest he has gone at a Grand Slam — while fellow Canadian Eugenie Bouchard reached the final at the All-England Club and Pospisil took home a doubles title with American Jack Sock in London.

"I'd say (Sunday's win is) probably, maybe, I'd say the second-biggest thing for Canadian tennis," said Raonic, who met with the media in Toronto on Monday afternoon after meeting with media across the border late Sunday.
