Andy Murray put on a dominate display on route to defeating Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2 in the Madrid Open Final at the Caja Magica on Sunday. Murray began the first set well racing to a 3-0 lead before the Spaniard began to claw his way back with a break of serve in the eighth game however it was a little too late as the Scot held on to his lead to take the first set 6-3. Murray showed some aggression and dominated the points throughout the set stamping his authority on clay against Nadal like never before.
In the second set it was more of that Murray dominance as the world number two was able to consolidate his early break with a second and out-rallied Nadal to extend his lead to 4-0. The world number four attempted to stay in the match by winning his second game in the set with some good shots and tactical play but would have to force an error from the British number one in order to get a break and stay in the tie.
It mattered little because Murray recorded his first win over the “king of clay” in a final on the dirt, as the Spaniard sent his return on the Scot’s serve straight into the net. The Brit recorded a 6-3, 6-2 victory to take the title in the Spanish capital.
