VIDEO: Raonic calls Steve Nash, Wayne Gretzky ‘mentors’

Milos Raonic keeps some pretty good company.

Answering questions from fans on his Facebook page, Milos discusses the Canadians he looks up to and draws inspiration from as he continues to work toward his goals.

Raonic says that he reminds himself of advice he’s received from former NBA star Steve Nash and hockey legend Wayne Gretzky “daily,” especially their views on how to cope with obstacles and challenges as top-performing athletes.
It’s likely those messages of perseverance will be on the 24-year-old world No. 8’s mind as he gets set to take on the field at Wimbledon.

In the meantime, Raonic can rest easy knowing that Nash is probably still looking for words of advice about his tennis game…

Just played tennis with Gus and @milosraonic I’m thinking Milos would like that hour of his life back.
