Montreal: Fourth seed Rafael Nadal needed just 68 minutes to deliver a body blow to Canada's biggest tennis week, routing Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-2 to capture the ATP Montreal Masters on Sunday.

The Spaniard then made it clear that he is planning to carry on next week to the final major tune-up prior to the US Open, the combined ATP-WTA Cincinnati event.

"We'll see tomorrow, but I'm fine. I was able to recover well, I felt good physically today," said Nadal who made quick work of Raonic, who now becomes the first Canadian to be ranked in the top 10 on the ATP Tour.
