Rafael Nadal’s Feat Of Clay

From our How Rafa Got His Mojo Back bureau:

Nadal beats Ferrer for 7th Barcelona Open win

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Rafael Nadal became the first player in the Open Era to win two tournaments seven times after beatingDavid Ferrer 7-6 (1), 7-5 in Sunday’s Barcelona Open final.

The second-ranked Nadal’s 21st straight victory on clay followed up his eighth straight win in Monte Carlo, as Nadal won the 10th all-Spanish ATP final for a 48th career win.

As usual, Nadal low-keyed his performance:

”This is the hardest match I had on clay court this season, David always takes you to the limit,” Nadal told Spanish state TV. ”A bit of it was lottery, luck fell on my side today.”

As it did when Nadal beat – finally! – Novak Djokovic in the Monte Carlo Open the other week.

See you at the French Open, oui?
