Melbourne - Canada's Milos Raonic, world tennis Newcomer of the Year for 2011, withdrew from Australia's Kooyong Classic after a first-round loss (due to illness) in 2012, so, invited to return in 2013, he had something to prove. He didn't and did.
On Wednesday, Raonic, ranked 13 in the world, lost his opening match to Australia's Lleyton Hewitt, ranked 64th.
The following day, however, Raonic, defeated Crotia's Ivan Dodig, ranked 74th – a face-saving win he needed.

Saturday (January 12), in the final match, coming back after five surgeries in four years, the Tennis Warrior (as he is known down under), Lleyton Hewitt went on to win the Kooyong Classic, defeating Argentina's world-ranked number 7, Juan Martin Del Potro.
So, if Milos Raonic had to lose, at least it was to the Tournament Winner.
