    Second seed Rafael Nadal is through to the last four following his comprehensive defeat of fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos. The defending champion held eight consecutive service games without facing a break point.

    “I played much better this afternoon than in the morning,” said Nadal, who won his first match of the day over France's Benoit Paire. “I’m very happy to be in the semifinals another time in a very important tournament. I’m enjoying the week playing here. I love the tournament. I know everybody well. It feels like home, always.”

    Nadal ended the match with four service breaks and 26 of 31 first-service points captured.

    Fifth seed Milos Raonic made his second Barcelona semifinal after taking out former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo. The 22-year-old tallied 13 aces through two hours and 21 minutes of play.

    “Tommy's been playing really well this week. I'm happy with my performance and what I managed to accomplish today,” Raonic explained. “Rafa on clay is tougher than Rafa in general. But I'm Milos, so I got to go out there and do my job. I need to try and make him adjust to me more than myself to him.”

    Raonic completed the quarterfinal with 53 of 66 first-service points won.
