World No. 7 Milos Raonic was invited to the Embassy of Canada in Washington, D.C. on Monday to receive a personal tour by Ambassador Gary Doer. 

“It was great today to meet the Ambassador to Canada here in Washington,” said Raonic, who is in Washington for the Citi Open. “I got to go up around the Embassy and have a great view down at Capitol Hill. Not only that, but it's pretty amazing the collection of Canadian art that they have; all the Canadian artists that they show throughout the whole Embassy. There's got to be a couple of hundred pieces of beautiful art. 

“There's also a lot of history there. They even put on display Canadian sportsmen. It's pretty nice to see all that kind of stuff. I thought it would be a little bit more cold feeling inside, but it felt really homely and it felt like it was designed to make people feel comfortable. It's nice to see that kind of atmosphere created there.

“I took a beautiful picture with Capitol Hill in the background with the Ambassador. He was really nice about it and he gave me a tour; he even explained to me the history of the building, how Canada got in. This is the 25th year anniversary of that Embassy and it's pretty special to see it. Hopefully they can come out to my matches.”

The 23-year-old Raonic is seeded second at the ATP World Tour 500 hard-court tournament and opens his campaign against either Michael Berrer or Jack Sock
