Milos Raonic persevered with his serve-and-volley game plan, holding firm even in the deciding set against Stan Wawrinka after the 2014 Australian Open champion had rallied from two sets down to force a fifth.It paid off for Raonic, who beat Wawrinka 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-3 on Monday to secure a spot in the quarterfinals at the Australian Open.Raonic and Wawrinka were both on seven-match winning streaks entering the fourth round, both having won titles leading into the season's first major.And Wawrinka was on a roll, having come back from two sets down six previous times in majors, and having the momentum in the third and fourth sets until his attempted passing shot landed long in the sixth game of the fifth, giving Raonic the decisive break.
