Google Down the Line!: WEEKEND WINNER: Rafa

Monday, April 28, 2008


Rafael Nadal picked up where he left off this time last year in Europe - winning on the red clay and owning Roger Federer on the Spaniard's fave surface.

The 21-year old steamrolled the competition last week at the Monte Carlo Masters, displaying his trademark tenacity in the final by coming back from a break down in the first set and 0-4 in the second against Fed. He now owns a ridiculous 98-1 record on clay since April 2005 and becomes the first baller to win in Monte Carlo four consecutive times (plus winning the last two years without dropping a set.)

Oh yeah - he also won the doubles title with compatriot Tommy Robredo.

Pretty good week, eh?

  1. He must be one happy boy right now. I can't wait for the clay season to come to a close and see him take home all the titles for a four-year run. He deserves it.
