Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell 2016
by MAC

It is just fantastic for Rafa to have back to back tournament wins for the first time since 2013. Winning 10 matches in a row is his longest streak since the beginning of 2014.

It was his 101st final and his 69th title overall. It was also his 49th clay court title which equals the record set by Guillermo Vilas more than 30 years ago.

I'm not going to write much. Instead I'll let the stunning pictures suffice.

His route to the title involved beating the following players...

Marcel Granollers, 6-3, 6-2

Albert Montanes, 6-2, 6-2

Fabio Fognini, 6-2, 7-6(1)


and finally, Kei Nishikori 6-4, 7-5


Enhorabuena, Rafa
