Barcelona: Rafael Nadal kept alive his hopes of an eighth title at the Barcelona Open on Saturday as he waited out a rain delay before hammering Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-0 in their semi-final.

The 26-year-old has made a remarkable comeback from the depths of 2012 when he sat out seven months from July to February with knee problems. His Barcelona success marks his sixth straight final since his return to the game.

The second seed will face Spanish compatriot Nicolas Almagro on Sunday after the fourth seed beat German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-2, 6-1 in well under an hour.
