I thought this deserved a new thread, congratulations to Rafa on his 2nd career title, defeating Alberto Martin 6-0 6-7 6-1. Great tournament from Rafa, hope he can keep it up the rest of the year!
Rafa won the first 10 games of the match to lead 6-0 4-0...then somehow Martin fought back and won the 2nd set on a tie break. Rafa incredibly gathered himself and won the final set 6-1. Unbelievable fighting qualities shown by Rafa the whole week.
