6:09 am on 27 April 2009

The world tennis number one Rafael Nadal has chalked up yet another claycourt title, winning his 5th consecutive Barcelona Open with a straight sets victory over his countryman David Ferrer.

In a rematch of last year's final Nadal beat Ferrer, the 4th seed 6-2 7-5, and after his victory declared he's in the best shape of his life.

22 year old Nadal has lost only four matches on clay since 2005, and his next tournament is the Rome Masters which he's won for the last three years.
