Once again, Rafael Nadal was too good for everyone!

The Spanish Legend was opposed to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Toronto final, and he was the hot favorite for 2 reasons: first, the Greek was dead tired after an exhausting run; second, Nadal is… Nadal.

The final

As forecasted, Nadal started the final in the best possible way to grab a 6-2 3-1 lead in no time. When everything was pointing to a quick dismissal, Tsitsipas’ great heart kicked in, and the Greek broke Nadal when the Spaniard was trying to serve out the match when leading 5-4. After holding his serve (5-5), Stefanos put a lot of pressure in the following game to Nadal that had to save a set point with the help of the net. Eventually, everything went to the tiebreak that Nadal won at 4. The final result was 6-2 7-6 (4).

It’s a great way to start the hard-court season. NADAL

Rafa was particularly happy with this title to comment

“If you told me this two weeks ago I would not have believed it. It’s a great way to start the hard-court season. Winning in Toronto is so important. You don’t win Masters 1000s very often. It’s a very important victory for me, and I’m very happy.”

This is Rafa’s 33rd master and his 80th title. He is definitely going for more next week in Cincinnati.
