    Russian tennis player Igor Andreev crashed out of the Barcelona Open with a second-round defeat to Milos Raonic of Canada on Wednesday.

    Raonich, the 11th seed, won 6-4, 6-1 without facing a single break point to set up a third-round tie Thursday with Spain’s Nicolas Almagro.

    The win was Raonic’s second in three meetings with Andreev, with both victories coming on clay.

    Andreev was the last Russian left in the draw after world No. 90 Igor Kunitsyn was upset 7-6(5), 6-3 on Monday by Portugal’s Joao Sousa, who is ranked 50 places below him.

    The other Russian in the draw, Evgeny Donskoy, fell 6-2, 6-3 to Ukraine’s Evgeniy Stakhovsky in the first round Monday.
