2007 PARIS MASTERS    

FINAL     

DAVID NALBANDIAN    v     RAFAEL NADAL             

6-4 6-0       

David Nalbandian beat Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-0 Sunday to win the Paris Masters and clinch his second straight Masters title after winning in Madrid last month.
The Argentine player broke Nadal in the ninth game of the first set and three times in the second. He won the match with a forehand that bounced off the net and landed inside the line.
"All week I was playing great, and I don't know why the result was so easy," Nalbandian said. "After I broke him, I felt that I was playing better than him. I play more relaxed, start hitting winners almost from everywhere. That gave me confidence."
Nalbandian beat the world's two top players on his way to the title, having knocked out top-ranked Roger Federer in the third round. He also beat Nadal in straight sets in the Madrid quarterfinals.   Nadal rarely loses a set without winning a game, which shows just how dominant Nalbandian is playing now.  Nalbandian repeatedly used his crushing backhand into Nadal's forehand corner which left Nadal running and hitting wildly.  Nalbandian closes out the year with back to back Masters Tournament shields!  Safin accomplished the same feat in 2004 and went on to win the Australian Open the next year.  Nalbandian is poised with his dominant tennis to make a similar run next year.
