Nadal reclaims Wimbledon crown in style

4th July 2010, Comments 0 comments


Rafael Nadal has reclaimed the Wimbledon men's singles title beating Tomas Berdych in three straight sets. The Spanish world number beat the Czech 12th seed 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in the final.

Undefeated at Wimbledon since the 2007 final, Nadal won the 2008 title by beating Federer in an epic five-set tussle. He could not defend it last year, due to knee problems that he is still not rid of.

The "King of Clay" underlined his mastery on all surfaces by completing his second French Open-Wimbledon back-to-back double, winning both finals in three sets.

In securing his eighth Grand Slam, Nadal went level with Andre Agassi,  Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Fred Perry and Ken Rosewall.

And with Switzerland's Roger Federer showing signs of weakness, Nadal could easily go on to eclipse their efforts.

Nadal walked away with 1.2 million euros, while Berdych collected 600,000 euros.
