US OPEN SCENE: No muss, no fuss for Raonic's hair

August 30, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — What's the secret of Milos Raonic's perfect hair?

He's not telling but maybe his slick, jet-black, Cary Grant style will speak for itself.

"It's got a Twitter account, so it actually does more speaking than I probably do," said the fifth-seeded Raonic, who acknowledges he follows @milosraonichair himself.

Raonic's hair, already the subject of much discussion on tour, got a new spritz of publicity Saturday when CBS tennis analyst John McEnroe commented how even gale-force winds wouldn't muss Raonic's lid, asking, "Does any piece of his hair ever go out of place?"

"It's not really a secret ... just the right product," Raonic said after his straight-set victory over Victor Estrella Burgos.

Given the opportunity at his news conference, the big-serving Canadian declined to plug the product, and perhaps pick up a new endorsement contract.

"Maybe I will," he said, "but I'm not necessarily chasing one at the moment."
