Murray was to have been Raonic’s opponent in Miami last month, but the Canadian had to withdraw injured before that hardcourt showdown.¬†With the scene shifted to clay, the momentum went with the Canadian as he took the biggest scalp of his fast-rising career in just under one and three-quarter hours at the Real Club de Tenis. Meanwhile, top seed and World No 2 Rafael Nadal defeated Serb Janko Tipsarevic 6-2, 6-2 in another semi-final.
