Nadal Wins 2nd Title in 2 Weeks: It's Clay Court Season...

Rafael Nadal
If Rafael Nadal needed a bit of match play and a confidence boost heading into the French Open, well the past two weeks are definitely a start.  Nadal won his seventh straight title in Barcelona over fellow Spaniard, David Ferrer 7-6 (1), 7-5.  Many may focus on the field
or Nadal’s winning record against Ferrer, but simply winning lots of matches, including tight ones over players you’ve beaten before, absolutely boosts your confidence.  

The tournament was also a showcase for Spanish men’s tennis.  Sunday was the sixth time two Spanish men played for the title in the past eight years and it’s been won by a Spanish man for ten straight years, not surprisingly given their dominance on Tour and especially on clay courts.  At the same time, Nadal is now 11-0 versus Spanish men in finals.  With his 48th career title, Rafa is now 21-0 on clay courts.  Clearly, it’s been a great start to the clay court season for Nadal, but the tournaments in Madrid and Rime, which will feature all the top players, will be the real test before Roland Garros.
