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.

Vamos Rafa!!! :bounce:
And here's what our hero said after that win:

"I was leading easily doing simple things and playing well. I even thought it was too easy, and in a final, things can turn around really quickly. I got a little tense and he managed to come back."

"I am very happy about this second ATP title. It gives me a lot of confidence and tells me that I am doing the right things. I wanted to get a certain number of points during this clay swing and I have achieved this goal. It is a good start that puts me in a good position for what I have planned for the year."

"Now it is time for Acapulco but I really had a great time here in Latin America."

"Acapulco is the biggest of the four events of the Latin American swing, with the highest amount of points, so hopefully I can win a lot of them."
