Never in doubt at all, good training for Rafa.

Ferrer was brave and didn't bend over, but he was just outgunned.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Ferrer put in a solid performance, that's all you can expect really.

I am appalled by ATP for allowing the clay court season to continue. It's just not good for the rating. Let's just skip clay and give all the titles to Rafa. The way he is going he may want to enter the doubles tournament as well all by himself.

I wish I can say it was a good effort from Ferrer in the first set but it wasn't. At least Pics made the most of it when Nadal's level dropped down in the middle of the second set. He even got only 2 points from winning a set.

Congrats for the 5th Barcelona Rafa. Very good victory against a very good clay courter. His science of the game has really no rival. He has not lost a set during all the tournament, unlike last year. I hope he will be at his top for Roma.

Good fight from Ferrer too. At least he tried.

nadal's serve is an embarrassment and an insult to the sport, everytime he breaks he gets broken back easily. the french open is not in the bag by any means. he might struggle to win the french playin like this. sorry but its the reality.

Ferrer fought very hard, but Nadal is just too strong. Just stay with Nadal is just a self destruction...

Some excellent tennis from Rafa, at times dictating with the backhand and hitting forehand down the line winners. Nice effort from Pics, he even came close to winning the 2nd set.
