NADAL, SHARAPOVA RULE MADRID MASTERS

0

Rafael Nadal won his fourth Madrid Masters title on Sunday (Monday in Manila) when Kei Nishikori was forced to quit their final with a back injury having had the Spaniard on the back foot. Japanese 10th seed Nishikori had taken the first set 6-2 and led 4-2 in the second before the back pain which had plagued him all week forced him to retire. That allowed top seed Nadal to claim a 2-6, 6-4, 3-0 win for his 27th Masters title and 63rd career crown after one hour and 41 minutes on court. Maria Sharapova fought back to defeat Simona Halep 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 to win her second clay title of the season.
