Any way you look at it, that serve is impressive.

Milos Raonic keeps making strides on court, reaching a career-high world ranking of No. 4 Monday, and there’s no getting around the massive serve that helped him get there.

Much has changed in the 24-year-old’s game since his debut on the ATP tour in 2009, but the power of the serve remains. Here are 11 angles of one of the best serves in the game.
