Milos Raonic made history Friday, becoming the first Canadian male tennis player to advance to a Grand Slam singles final. He did so at Wimbledon and against Roger Federer no less.
The initial reaction was mostly surprise as the 25-year-old knocked out one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
Can't believe Federer is out! Well played Raonic. #Wimbledon— @F0ggyNelson
Took a nap and woke up to see that Roger Federer lost 😮 #Wimbledon— @RonaldBessling
Federer fans, while heartbroken, were still able to acknowledge the determination displayed by Raonic.
My heart aches to see Federer go out in the semis. He is a beautiful tennis player but Roanic earned the finals today. #Wimbledon— @sfriedgirl
It's highly saddening to see Federer go this way in 1st S'Final against the Canadian Milos Roanic in 5 sets. Happy for Roanic! #Wimbledon— @karmughilvannan
Even non-tennis fans are beginning to #believeinthesleeve.

Another game for Milos! First Canadian man to make a Grand Slam singles final - one more to go. Good luck on Sunday. #Wimbledon— @JustinTrudeau

Oh, and Milos? Well if you ask him, he's not done yet.
