Milos Raonic has so far failed improve on his career year in 2016, with a Grand Slam breakthrough the next step for the big-serving Canadian ahead of the US Open.
Raonic has long been earmarked as the next man to break his major duck and reached his first final at the All England Club in 2016, beating Roger Federer in an epic five-set semi-final, before losing in straight sets to Andy Murray.
He saw his form improve dramatically after recruiting John McEnroe onto his coaching team, the seven-time Grand Slam winner tasked with turning good performances into title victories, but the pair have since gone their separate ways.
Aside from the Wimbledon defeat, Raonic also reached the last four at the World Tour Finals and finished the year at a career-high third in the world rankings.
So far this year, the 26-year-old has been plagued by injury and poor form which has seen him lose at the quarter-final stage at the Australian Open and the fourth round of the French Open.
An early Queen's exit did little to help Raonic by way of preparations for Wimbledon, though he did make the quarter-finals, losing to eventual champion Federer.
