Milos Raonic has appointed Richard Krajicek as his new coach.

The 24-year-old Canadian recently announced that he would stop working with Carlos Moya, and now says he has filled Moya's position.

"Today was my first practice with Richard Krajicek," he wrote on social media, saying that the two had first spent some time on court a year ago. "I’m sure with his experience and being a Wimbledon champion, [he] can help me reach my goals. I look forward to doing great things."

Raonic worked with Moya for about a year, and is also coached full-time by Riccardo Piatti. Krajicek's attacking -style grass-court expertise was likely an important consideration. Raonic also worked with John McEnroe as a consultant during the grass-court events this past season, reaching his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon, and is looking to keep improving his net play.
