Too bad for Ferru, but I like Rafa, too! I love seeing them matched up together because I know the match is going to be hot. They are two tenacious players who never give up.

Post match interviews

Nadal: "It's almost unimaginable to win here seven times. It's a special tournament for me, at home in my club. To win at home in front of the people you know is always more special. I played at a very high level to win in Monte-Carlo and now Barcelona without losing a set, but I've been playing at a high level from the beginning of the year starting in Australia.

“The emotions are always high, but probably each year they get a bit higher as you are one year older and you don't know how many chances you are going to have left.

“It was a very equal match. He didn't let me play my best level in the first set. I feel sorry for David and hope he can win here one day because he deserves it. Of course I am very happy to win two titles in a row and to start the clay court season like this.”

Ferrer: “I had chances in both sets; he played better in the important moments. It's always hard to lose a final, but especially today it's hard because of the way it happened. It came down to small details, but Rafa deserved it.

“Overall I am happy with my week. I played my best match of the week today, but to win against Rafa I had to do more. I played a bit too conservatively on the set points in the first set. It's difficult to lose my fourth final. It was a very good tournament for me."

Re: The * Beat 'Em All in Barca, David* Cheering Thread

Shame for David that he couldn't take his chances today. There was one set point when he hit a deep return, got a short reply but tentatively netted it. Still, he's having a good year, slipped to sixth but is still fifth in the race. Hope he can do some damage at RG.

David played very very well and should have taken set #1 at the least - but failed terribly on the Big Points. Same story in set #2. Of course... like Sue already said, a lot of that had to do with Rafa being a monster on the surface just the same.

Still good attempt by Pics!
(I noticed he barely managed to not burst into tears after the match... awwww! )

David lost the final to Rafa 7/6 7/5

Nadal triumphs in Barcelona classic


Rafa Nadal became the first player in the open era to win two tournaments seven times when he fought off tenacious Spanish compatriot David Ferrer 7-6 (7-1) 7-5 to win a thrilling Barcelona Open final on Sunday.

In a repeat of last year's title match and 10 years to the day since he made his World Tour debut, Nadal came out on top in a claycourt slugfest between the nation's two best players that wowed the capacity crowd in the Catalan capital.

The world number two, fresh from clinching a record eighth straight Monte Carlo Masters crown last week, claimed the giant Conde de Godo trophy for the seventh time in eight years with his 34th straight win at the event.

It was the 25-year-old French Open champion's 48th career title and his 34th triumph on his beloved clay.

Sixth-ranked Ferrer went toe to toe with his Davis Cup team mate in a closely-fought first set but failed to convert five set points on his opponent's serve when leading 6-5 and faded badly to lose the tiebreak 7-1.

Meeting Nadal for a fourth time in the Barcelona final and chasing an ATP-best fourth title this year, Ferrer looked spent at that stage but after losing his serve to fall 3-1 behind managed to conjure the energy to break back.

He then drew on all his famed stamina and tenacity to carve out a 5-4 lead but again failed to convert and Nadal won the next three games, sealing victory with a backhand winner before leaping into the air to celebrate.
