Re: Barcelona SF: Nadal roasts Raonic 6-4 6-0

Complete mismatch. Raonic's BH just can't hold up in rallies against Rafa and his forward movement is too clumsy to take Rafa out of his comfort zone on return zones. Nadal could just stand miles behind the baseline getting Raonic's serve bombs back and then slowly dismantle Milos's BH. The scoreline really reflects what happened on court, Milos just couldn't trouble Rafa in any way.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Routine match for Rafa. Raonic is just a bad tennis player, huge serve and nothing more.

Nadal had some very intelligent plays and some fantastic winners today.

Re: Barcelona SF: Nadal roasts Raonic 6-4 6-0

Milos played fine in the first set, got tired in the second. Nadal played as well as I've seen him in about a year on a court he hasn't lost in a decade, so that was probably enough to discourage him, I imagine.

Hope Milos doesn't get discouraged going forward, though. He played well this week to get to this point and there's a lot of clay season left.

Frightening display from Nadal. I thought Raonic played pretty well until he became discouraged.

Will be a sad day for tennis if Raonic ever wins a Slam, that's for sure.

Always nice to see Nadal take out servebot trash.
Tired from yesterday apparently. There is always an excuse as to why he yet again fails to deliver any signs of becoming the top player he is hyped to be. Today he was shown up to be the servebot he is. Simple.

Nadal has lost nearly 5 kilos regarding when Monte Carlo started. He is getting fit so pray for death

You were expecting him to beat Nadal on clay on a court he hasn't lost in a decade or something?
