Unstoppable Rafa


Rafael Nadal once again displayed his clay court dominance as he brushed aside Greek teenager Stefanos Tstisipas 6-2,6-1 to capture

11th Barcelona Open title on Sunday.Nadal was at his usual best on clay as he lost just 3 games in  the final.Now he has extended his straight sets win to 46 on clay.This is his 77th ATP title leaving him at 4th on the all time list of most ATP title winners behind only to Jimmy Conners,Roger Federer and Ivan Lendl.With this trophy Rafa also extends his hold on top of rankings for 172nd week.The Spaniard who won his 400th match on clay in the semifinal seems to be hungry for more assault on his opponents as he looks to defend titles in Madrid and French Open Grand Slam next month on red dirt.
