It seems like with every title, Rafael Nadal is rewriting the history books. Today he defeated David Ferrer, 6-2, 6-4 to claim the Barcelona crown, and with this win he is the first player in the Open Era to win 2 tournaments at least 6 times. (He won his 7th straight Monte Carlo title last week). Maybe we should just start calling him King Rafa and be done with it.
At the trophy presentation, Rafa was given "The Beast" (my name for the Barcelona trophy because it's HUGE!!) and he had a little trouble balancing it at first:
But no worries, he finally got it just right.
Here is a video of Rafa at the trophy ceremony:
