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.

    If best of Rafa meets best of Roger in The final, we know Rafa wins easily
    Vamosssssss Rafa 😎 😍
    I want this trophy badly

  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

  4. Rafa thank you . It was a good match. Just one day at a time.
    Love you always. Love your million dollar smile.😙😙😙😙😙😙😙😙😙


  5. Wow, very well done! Rafa didn’t even give Borna any time to breath or set up his shots. Best wishes in the next round! What a jam session!

    Also loved the blue/yellow color combo.

  6. Great job don Rafa vamosssssssssssssssssssss good luck Champ.🏆🎾🎾🎾🎾👍👍👍👍🇺🇸❤️

  7. Nice job! Just the right match to ease Rafa into the tournament. Glad he was able to keep the match short, so more energy for the next round. So far, so good!

  8. Congratulations Rafa for a very strong win against Coric

    Next is a Canadian wiz kid backed by a hooligan croud that managed to upset Del Potro. So pls watch out.


  9. Solid first match and a nice win. Aggressive serving and returning, a promising sign for a great US Open season! Rafa, good luck tomorrow!

  10. 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!

  11. 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%
