Second seed Rafael Nadal crafted his most impressive performance of the season Saturday evening in Acapulco, dethroning three-time defending champion David Ferrer 6-0, 6-2 to win the Abierto Mexicano Tolcel title.
Since returning from a seven-month absence with a left knee injury in February, Nadal has won 12 of his 13 matches to open his comeback season. He began by finishing runner-up at the VTR open in Vina del Mar (l. to Zeballos) before triumphing at the Brasil open in in Sao Paulo (d. Nalbandian). Saturday’s victory over Ferrer marked Nadal's 38th clay-court trophy, with seven coming against Ferrer. The Mallorcan also won the Acapulco crown on his event debut in 2005.
"This was a great week for me and today I played exceptionally well, I dominated the game against the world No. 4 and couldn't be happier, especially when I think where I am coming from," said Nadal. "Perhaps the conditions were in my favour but I feel it was maybe one of the best matches of my career."
Nadal never allowed Ferrer to get involved in the highly anticipated final, as he claimed the first eight games. The 11-time major champion broke his countryman five times from eight opportunities, winning 58 per cent of his return points. He closed out the victory in just 65 minutes to improve his FedEX ATP Head2Head series with Ferrer to a 17-4 mark.
The left-hander will play an exhibition match against J.M Del porto on Monday before contesting the season's first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells. "It's a tournament that I love and one of the best events in the year. My knee responded well this week and I really hope it will continue this way," said Nadal.
Rafa looks great with that traditional hat Congratulations again ! Rafa is getting back to his former performance ;)
Rafa ReturnedRafael Nadal returned to hard court for the first time in 346 days on Saturday as he defeated American Ryan Harrison 7-6(3), 6-2 in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.The Spaniard, whose last hard-court tournament was the 2012 Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, let slip a 4-1 lead in the first set, but clinched it on a tie-break before breaking Harrison twice in the second set to claim victory in one hour and 34 minutes."I am satisfied to be in the next round. That's the most important thing," said Nadal. "Two weeks ago, I didn't really know if I would be here playing. I am happy to be here. I am happy to be in the third round. It was a good victory for me today against a good opponent."My physical performance needs to improve. My movement needs to improve. Matches like this help me. Any victory is important for me because that gives me the chance to play another day. That's what I need, to play matches. I need to compete", Rafa said!
