VANCOUVER, CANADA: Milos Raonic is looking to inspire children to pick up a racket and start to play tennis after he won his second rubber of the weekend and secure a first Canadian World Group victory in a century as they beat an understrength Spanish side in Toronto.

He is also hoping that this victory enables the country to gain greater respect as he moves towards a Top 10 ranking and veteran Daniel Nestor fly the flag for their country.
