PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal eases past Borna Coric in Montreal

Rafael Nadal has progressed through to the third round of the Rogers Cup after he eased past Borna Coric.

The world number two, who is a three-time winner of the Canadian tournament,  needed 71 minutes to secure a 6-1, 6-2 triumph in Montreal.

He made light work of Coric in the first set, with the Croatian pro losing two breaks of serve. The match continued in similar fashion in the second set, with Rafa completely dominating proceedings and Coric unable to stop him from strolling to a 6-2 victory.

Rafa will face Canadian wild card Denis Shapovalov in the next round after the 18-year-old recorded one of the biggest wins of his career with a 6-3, 7-6(4) win over Juan Martin del Potro.

  3. This is what Rafa does when he is on full song. Some were tense about the match because of the head to head but Rafa lost those match when he was unhealthy. No disrespect to Borna but when greats play in this form you are just act as a side kick

    Sweet revenge for Rafa.
    Coric was so easy for 2017 Rafa it was ridiculous.
    The serve was particularly lethal.
    Shap will be tougher but he’ll get by him too, and he’ll get by Milos, and I now see it took AZ to a 3rd set TB to beat Gasquet so that bodes well for beating AZ.

    One at a time! So thrilled to see Rafa doing this. ON his way to #1 very soon!

    Great job Rafa. That was one heck of a beatdown. One down with four more to go. Wishing you all the best for another Masters.

    RAFA ROCKS 150%
