  • Raonic starts with success in Barcelona Open

    4/24/12 1:21 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Milos Raonic advanced to the second round in Barcelona with a win on the opening day of play.

    Milos Raonic (11) def. Alejandro Falla 6-4, 7-6(3)

    Big-serving Milos Raonic dispatched Alejandro Falla in straight sets to advance to the Barcelona second round. Raonic, who often wins matches on the power of his mighty first serve, only served up seven aces, but he played well enough off from the baseline to make up the difference.

    Raonic played better in the first set than he did in the second. Falla didn’t make a dent on the Raonic serve in the opening frame, but in the second he not only earned four break-point chances, but he also converted on one of them to force a tiebreaker.

    The Canadian, who has the better serve, managed to take the breaker 7-3 and will face Igor Andreev or Diego Junqueira in the second round.

    Joining Raonic in the second round will be Jarkko Nieminen, who defeated Javier Marti of Spain 6-4, 6-1. Robin Haase, who was a surprise quarterfinalist at the Monte Carlo Masters, advanced when opponent Sergei Bubka retired at 3-2 in the second set.
