Nadal sets record, defeats Soderling 6-2, 7-5, 6-1

Nadal sets the record as Vilas looks on. Nadal didn't play all that well, but the wind was definitely bothering him. Soderling at times used a very good inside-out BH down the line to set up huge FH's to win some points but wasn't anywhere near consistent enough to really challenge Nadal outside of the second set as he he gave up at the end.

Nadal def Soderling 6-2 7-5 6-1, breaks the record for consecutive wins on clay!!!

Congratulations on breaking the record Rafa

A bit shaky in the 2nd, Soderling had points to go 5-2 up. It was pretty windy out there, wasn't the greatest match ever. Soderling hit some great forehands, but Nadal wore him out in the end.

Go on and win the tourney now son

^LOL. I was going to post this at 4-1, but held on. Looks like Nadal will receive some sort of award.

Apparently the trophy is a representation of the geological processes that create clay.

Re: Nadal sets record, defeats Soderling 6-2, 7-5, 6-1

Congrats, Nadal!

He played below par and still won easily, and set his new and most impressive record so far and it's one he'll likely hold for a loooooong time, though I do think it won't be that distant to Vilas'

PS - Great trophy, very original!

Congrats Rafa!

It wasn't pretty though.

The gusty wind really bothered Rafa, I've rarely seen him so frustrated. It's lucky he toughed out the second set, it could've been much more difficult otherwise. Good fight from Robin in the second, but it was all Rafa in the end.

I'm allergic to morons.

Re: Nadal sets record, defeats Soderling 6-2, 7-5, 6-1

I found watching Soderling play far more exciting to be honest. Nadal was below par despite the score-line. I feel bad for Robin as he wasted some opportunities. His volleying was shocking today and he was pressing as you have to do against Nadal.
Congrats to Rafa for this achievement. Don't enjoy his style of play, but it is certainly very effective. Don't know how anyone can beat him on the dirt. You can't hit winners and you can't outlast him by grinding.
