Raonic working with Javier Piles

Canadian Milos Raonic has worked with a lot of coaches recently. From Carlos Moyá to Richard Krajicek to longtime coach Ricardo Piatti to former doubles specialist Mark Knowles, he’s done the tour.

This summer, the Canadian had Serbian Dusan Vemic on board. But his hard-court swing was cut short by a wrist issue that required surgery.


In his return to the courts in Tokyo this week, Team Raonic has another new member, Tennis.Life has learned.

It’s Javier Piles, who coached David Ferrer his entire career until they split in 2013. Piles then worked with Roberto Bautista Agut.
