Andy Murray beats Rafael Nadal, wins Madrid Open


Andy Murray won the Madrid Master Final on Sunday night by 6-3, 6-2. This was his first victory over Rafael Nadal to win the Madrid Master.

Murray, who won his first clay court title in Munich, has now secured two in a week.

“I played a good match. I made very few mistakes and changed the height of the ball extremely well which was part of the reason why he was mistiming a few shots. I used the second serve into the forehead a lot and that worked a lot because I was able to get him moving. I dealt with all of the nervy moments,” said Murray to a source.

“I`ve always said if the personal stuff is happy and under control that helps your performance on the court. But I also feel healthy this year and I have trained well. I`m in much better shape on the clay than I have been for a number of years.” Murray added.

Nadal reached the final without dropping a single set, showing signs of his best form ahead of the French Open later this month.
