2007 BARCELONA OPEN

Final

 RAFAEL NADAL v GUILLERMO CANAS

6-3 , 6-4

 

 

Rafael Nadal became only the second player to win the Barcelona Open three times in a row after beating Guillermo Canas 6-3 6-4 in Sunday's final.
One break in each set was enough to give Nadal victory and help the Spaniard emulate the achievements of former world number one Mats Wilander.
Victory over Argentine Canas also extended Nadal's record-winning streak on clay to 72 matches.

Canas showed his ability on clay and his tremendous conditioning by running down shot after shot to keep points going.

But Nadal worked like a boxer, tiring his opponent with his relentless topspin shots.  Pushing his Argentine opponent side to side and back behind the baseline,

Nadal took control of the match.  Canas' conditioning is superb, but he was keeled over trying to catch his breath after several points. 
Nadal's streak on clay is becoming astonishing, and both players look like heavy favorites for the upcoming French Open.
