  • Raonic upsets Almagro, Ferrer advances in Barca

    4/27/12 3:37 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Canadian Milos Raonic treated Nicolas Almagro to another early clay-court exit with a win on Thursday in the third round.

    Milos Raonic (11) def. Nicolas Almagro (6) 6-3, 6-3

    The usually solid play of Spaniard Nicolas Almagro has been noticeably absent so far on European clay. The No. 6 seed suffered a loss in the third round of Monte Carlo last week at the hands of Stanislas Wawrinka. This week the culprit was the big-serving Milos Raonic.

    While Raonic served well in this match, his return was the real surprise. The Canadian was solid off the ground, good enough to secure a trio of break points from Almagro. Raonic served relatively few aces for the match (seven), but his effort was good enough to make through both sets without getting broken.

    Raonic will take on Andy Murray in an interesting quarterfinal.

    David Ferrer (3) def. Albert Montanes 6-0, 6-2

    Spaniard David Ferrer completely dismantled countryman Albert Montanes in their round of 16 match. Montanes wasn't as outplayed as the scoreline suggests, but the world No. 69 was dismal on the big points of the match. He only saved three of eight break points against him and did not manage to convert on either chance he had on Ferrer's serve.

    Ferrer was able to play his favorite kind of patient baseline game, luring Montanes into making unforced errors and then capitalizing on his opportunities. Ferrer will meet countryman Feliciano Lopez in the quarters.
