Canada’s Milos Raonic has been eliminated at the Australian Open with a 6-4, 7-6, 6-4 quarter-final loss to Spain’s Rafael Nadal.

Raonic, the third-seed from Thornhill, Ont., was trying to repeat his best showing at the Grand Slam tournament by reaching the semifinals for a second straight year. He lost to Andy Murray in the 2016 semis.

The ninth-seeded Nadal held the advantage heading into the match, having won six of eight previous contests against Raonic.

The 26-year-old Raonic won the last meeting between the two; however, at the quarter-finals of the Brisbane International three weeks ago.

Raonic was the highest remaining seed in the quarter-finals after top-seed Murray lost to Germany’s Mischa Zverev in the fourth round and second-seed Novak Djokovic was upset in the second round by Denis Isotomin.
