7th Heaven! Rafael Nadal Makes History With Title At 2012 Barcelona Open

Rafael Nadal

The King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, made ATP history by becoming the first player in the Open Era to win two tournaments 7 times with a 7-6  (1) 7-5 victory over the scrappy David Ferrer to take the title at the 2012 Barcelona Open. Although Nadal continued his mastery of clay by defeating Ferrer for the fourth time at the Barcelona Open, he had to fight for this victory. Ferrer had 15 break chances, but Rafa fought off 12 of them. Ferrer also broke Nadal to go up 5-4 in the second set. But David couldn’t capitalize on the break, getting broken himself while serving for the set. Rafa would win the final three games of the match to fend off Ferrer’s challenge.
