Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic has added former top-ranked Carlos Moya to his coaching staff.

The 25-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., announced the news on Instagram on Friday shortly after defeating Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 7-5 in the semi-finals of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.

"A great way to start off the New Year. With a win," Raonic posted on Instagram.

Raonic said the former world No. 1-ranked Moya will join him in Melbourne, Australia, adding "As a great champion, competitor and person I think he will be a great mentor/coach to me in achieving my dreams and complementing/joining the team."

The Canadian's victory over Wawrinka set up a meeting with Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.

Moya was ranked No. 1 in the world in March, 1999. The Spaniard won the French Open in 1998, and was an Australian Open finalist in 1997.
