Nadal wins record eighth title in Barcelona

6:02 am on 29 April 2013

Rafael Nadal has extended his record number of Barcelona claycourt tennis titles to eight after brushing off his countryman Nicolas Almagro 6-4 6-3.

But the Spanish ace had to rally from two service breaks down before claiming his fourth title of 2013 - Nadal's third on clay for the year.

The world No.5 has made the finals of all six events he's entered since his return in February from a seven-month injury break.
