Rafael Nadal clinches 11th Barcelona title

Rafael Nadal won his 11th Barcelona title on Sunday when he breezed past Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2, 6-1 in the final.

It was world number one Nadal’s 55th career clay-court title while he also extended his winning streak on the surface to 46 consecutive sets.

The 31-year-old Spaniard won his 11th Monte Carlo Masters last weekend also without dropping a set.

Sunday’s victory reinforced his status as the overwhelming favourite to lift the French Open for the 11th time in June.

Nadal now has 77 titles overall while his career clay-court match record stands at 401 wins against just 35 defeats.

His win on Sunday was greeted by ticker-tape and a video review of all his titles on the centre court in Barcelona which now bears his name.
