Favorites take care of business one day after Nadal's exit

“[Verdasco] played well the third, so he deserved to win more than me without any doubt,” Nadal said after going down 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 to his fellow Spaniard. “Today, my game in general improved since a month and a half [ago]. But at the same time, [I’m] still playing with too many nerves in a lot of moments, in important moments.

“I was anxious on court. I tried in every point, but I was not able to relax myself; calm myself.”

For the most part, favored players were able take care of business on Monday, with only Milos Raonic having to survive especially tense situations. The Canadian held off Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 5-7, 7-6(3) after two hours and 10 minutes.

I was handling it really good for first 30 minutes then started to make some unforced errors and started to play a little bit more neutral, a little bit slower, and he got into the match.

“[I] complicated my own life in the second set, but in the end of the day, it’s a win.”
