Milos Raonic’s dream mixed doubles partner is Ana Ivanovic (VIDEO)

During a press conference this week in Cincinnati, rising Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic was asked which female player he'd most like to play mixed doubles with. He only briefly hesitated before answering Ana Ivanovic.

As the video shows, when asked why he'd choose Ivanovic, Raonic coyly responded, "you can come up with the answer."

Challenge accepted. Our best seven guesses are below.

1. He wanted to play with a former world No. 1?

2. Her consistent groundstrokes would compliment his big serve?

3. An affinity for Serbians?

4. Hopes playing with a Grand Slam winner would propel him to similar heights?

5. Wants to break out his purple shirt?


6. Raonic and Ivanovic sound sort of alike?

7. Angling to play golf with Adam Scott?

We're stumped, Milos. Help us out if you get a chance.
