LONDON - Canadian Milos Raonic entered Wimbledon as the No. 8 seed and started his tournament expectedly, breezing past Australia's Matthew Ebden 6-2, 6-4, 6-4.
En route to the victory, Raonic fired 30 aces in a match that last just a little over 90 minutes. Ebden, meanwhile, was only able to muster two aces the entire match.
Having lost his only match on grass in 2014 at Halle, Germany, the 23-year-old Raonic has redeemed himself, advancing to the second-round at the All-England Club for the fourth-straight year. However, Raonic has never won consecutive matches at tennis's oldest major in his career - so he hopes that 2014 will bring him better luck.
