Rafa Rolls (Or Slides...)

It was a longer match than you might expect -- more than an hour and forty-five minutes -- but Rafael Nadal continued his dominance on clay in Barcelona with a 6-2, 7-5 victory over David Ferrer, bringing home his fifth consecutive title there.

It was his second championship in as many weeks and his twenty-fourth on the surface. With such strong performances, there's no reason to believe Nadal won't win his fifth trophy at Roland Garros next month. There are only a few tournaments left, and it certainly wouldn't surprise me if he swept the season.

So on the heels of his victory, I'm feeling inspired to get out on the clay myself! It's the first beautiful weekend of spring in New York, and I've got a date on the Central Park courts!

Hope to see you out there!
