Rafael Nadal moved up to No. 2 in the world rankings Saturday after beating Finland's Jarkko Nieminen 6-2, 7-5 to run his winning streak on clay to 33 matches. The win lifted the 19-year-old Spaniard into the final of the Mercedes Cup and kept alive a streak, dating back to April, that is the sixth longest on clay.
