LONDON -- Milos Raonic didnt seem that thrilled about reaching the third round of Wimbledon for the first time in his career. Santiago Arias Colombia Jersey . After all, the No. 8 seed is chasing far loftier goals. Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., defeated American Jack Sock 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in Wimbledons second round on Thursday. And while this is the first time he has progressed this far at the All England Club, he wasnt about to gush over a third-round appearance. "It might sound a little bit harsh, but (I dont have) too much feeling for it," he said. "I want to do much better than I have to this point and than I have done today." Still, Raonic never looked in trouble against Sock. He had 13 aces, 39 winners and three breaks of serve in the match. "I found a rhythm. For me, the most important thing, especially on grass, is finding that rhythm on second serve return," said Raonic. "I found that quite early on, and I was able to stick through it. In both of first two sets I was able to get early breaks, which helps. I was clean off my service games. "At all of these majors, I want to play better than I have in the past, to fight, compete and try to play better each day." Raonic will face Polands Lukasz Kubot in the third round. Kubot advanced with a 6-7 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (3) win over Serbias Dusan Lajovic. Also Thursday, Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., played through hip pain but lost 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 to Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan. Dancevic, who got into the main draw as a lucky loser, said that a good result from a scan on his lower pelvis Wednesday gave him the confidence to take to the court Thursday. "This is not a major issue so I decided to push through and play in some pain," he said. "I was struggling yesterday, it was a rough day." Dancevic, who was sporting a new mohawk haircut, has struggled with back issues before and didnt want to take any chances this time. "I didnt want to risk a lot an end up being out for the summer," he said. "Im on a pretty decent streak, I feel I can have a good summer and rest of the year." "I would have had to serve extremely well to win this match, I was struggling on ground stroke and I didnt feel 100 per cent," he added. "I think the issue is treated to bending on grass, this stiffness in lower pelvic region." Dancevic never gained a foothold against Kukushkin, failing to convert on any of his five break points. The Canadian managed seven aces and ended with 23 winners and 27 unforced errors. Kukushkin next faces second seed Rafael Nadal, who was a 4-6, 7-6 (, 6-4, 6-4 winner over Lukas Rosol.

And Im willing to work hard. Thanks to Montreal and all the guys in the front office for believing in me. Im excited to get to work.Bonjour Montreal, he added.In terms of first impressions, it was a draft-day slam dunk for the former Jamaican under-17 team member.The five-foot-11 182-pounder scored 17 goals in 34 games in his final two seasons at Central Florida. He had 18 goals and five assists in 51 career games over three seasons, recording seven game-winning goals and converting all six of his penalty kick attempts.Frank Klopas, Montreals head coach and director of player personnel, acknowledged he tried to trade up.You make an offer, it doesnt work out, he said. I feel comfortable with either of the three players (picked in the draft) but Im very comfortable we have Romario.Williams was one of five undeerclassmen in the draft, meaning his Generation Adidas contract will not count against the Impact salary cap.

He does have personality but hes a humble kid, said Klopas. Look its an opportunity for him but we all have to be realistic, I think. Hes got all the physical attributes.He knows nothing comes easy and the beginning is really now, Klopas added. You havent really accomplished anything. This is the starting point. He knows that.The Impact did not have a second-round pick. Rounds 3 and 4 go Jan. 20 via telephone.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter. NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
