Default Canada's Raonic in Aus Open tennis qtr-final

Canada's Milos Raonic is currently playing Spain's Rafael Nadal in a quarter-final of the Australian Open grand slam tennis tournament at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena. Nadal took the first two sets 6-4, 7-6. The only other Canadian I noticed in the singles was Eugenie Bouchard, who was eliminated early in the fortnight.

Australia's only player in the fourth-round singles was Russian-born Daria Gavrilova, but she lost that match in straight sets. Once again, we have no Aussie to watch on the Australia Day public holiday (Jan26). No Australian has won the Australian Open singles since Christine O'Neil in 1978 and Mark Edmondson in 1976.
