Chennai: Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic on Monday credited greater mental maturity for his breakout season last year, when he surged from the depths of a 150 plus ranking to his career best ranking of 25 in the men's singles roster in 2011.
"I worked on a lot of things but a big part of it was maturity," Raonic, the fourth seed at the Chennai Open 2012 here, told PTI in an interview.
"From a mental standpoint, just learning about my game. Learning to think what I needed to do for my game to be effective. (Nowadays) always in the pressure moments, I know the shots and the patterns I believe in the most. Whereas before, in the big moments, I would do something quite different," said the World No. 31.
