The 27-year-old Spaniard needed just 68 minutes to crush Raonic 6-2, 6-2 and claim his eighth title of 2013.

Sunday’s win completes Nadal’s victory in 48 out of 51 matches since returning from injury in February.

A rampant Nadal dropped just one point on serve in the opening set, and Raonic could not defend his own usually formidable delivery with a first serve percentage of just 50%.

Two breaks saw the Spaniard race through the first set and when Raonic double-faulted at break point down early in the second, the game was as good as up.

The second set followed a similar pattern to the first as Nadal gained the insurance of a second break in game seven, and he served out to claim the 25th Masters title of his career.
