Nadal wins the Mutua Madrid Open

The Spaniard Rafael Nadal (No. 5) beat the Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka (No. 15) 6-2, 6-4 in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open. It was Nadal’s ninth straight win against the Swiss, without ever dropping a set.

With this win, Nadal’s 40th on clay, he is now tied in second place with Thomas Muster for the most clay-court titles. (Vilas won 46.)

Nadal came out strong, winning the first four games before Wawrinka was finally able to hold in the fifth game. The Swiss held once more before Nadal served out the first set, 6-2.

The second set was a little more competitive, with Wawrinka holding serve until 3-3, when the Swiss double-faulted to give Nadal the first break of the second set.

Wawrinka held serve once more, before the Spaniard served out the match.
