not earn the upset as top see
#1
MIAMI -- Canadian Milos Raonic put up a fight but could not earn the upset as top seed Rafael Nadal recovered to win their quarter-final matchup in a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 comeback at the Sony Open Thursday. The Thornhill, Ont., product cemented his return next week to the ATP top 10 as he won his first career set against Nadal after four losses in the series. Raonic rolled over slightly on his ankle as he dived for a return in the third set but appeared to shake it off near the end of the two-hour, 34 minute struggle. The Canadian was held to eight aces and one break for serve from just three chances. He had 28 winners to Nadals 26. Raonic and Nadal duelled for 52 minutes in a tight opening set. The only true opening came in the final game. Nadal lost his first career set against Raonic as he sent over a perfect stop volley which dropped dead near Nadals net, giving the 12th seed set point while leading 5-4. Nadal put over a nervous double fault to lose the opener, his first dropped set of the tournament. But the Raonic magic began to fade in the second set after he started to lose pace on his weak second serve, with Nadal going up a double break for 4-0. Raonic contributed a pair of costly double-faults to end both of his losing games as the Spaniard took control, gathering his trademark momentum. The 23-year-old Canadian saved a break point to start the third set as the contest started to peak. Nadal got a break for 4-3 after Raonic had rallied from 0-30 down but eventually hit the next with a backhand to drop serve for the third time. Nadal held for 5-3 and earned the victory two games later, sealing his move into the semifinals on a forehand winner down the line for the first of three match points. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .
