MONTREAL - Surging Spaniard Rafael Nadal gave Milos Raonic a very public welcome into the ATP top 10 by drubbing the Canadian 6-2, 6-2 to win the Rogers Cup Sunday.
The world No. 4 played like the legendary 12-time Grand Slam winner that he is, and became the fourth player to win Canada's ATP event at least three times.
Nadal is the tour's hottest and winningest player this year and gave the 11,700 fans an exhibition of precision baseline shotmaking.
He adds this year's title to the 2005 and 2008 Rogers Cup trophies in his case, and was dominant from start to finish this week.
