Nadal Beats Raonic to Win Rogers Cup / Canada Masters 1000

Rafael Nadal topped his own record in Masters Series titles with win at Rogers Cup in Montreal.

Rafa won his 25th title at the ATP 1000 level with today’s win over local favorite, Milos Raonic.  The Canadian was making his first appearance in a Masters 1000 final.  In stark contrast to last night’s semifinal against Novak Djokovic, Nadal was in firm control. After breaking Raonic’s service in the first game, the outcome of the match never seemed in doubt.  Raonic’s big weapon, his serve, let him down, as he got broken twice in each set, and only saw break points on Nadal’s serve in one game, in the second set, but failed to convert.  The final score was 6-2, 6-2.

This was the Spaniard’s 3rd title at this tournament.  The win puts his W-L count to 47-3 for the year, and gives him his 8th title, and 7th Masters trophy at a hard court event.  He now has a commanding lead in the year-to-date point totals, with 8,010.  (Djokovic is in second place with 6,590.)
