One week after securing a record 10th title at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, Rafael Nadal etched his name in the history books once again, lifting a 10th trophy at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell.

Nadal's historic conclusion to the month of April extended to home soil, defeating Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-1.

Nadal has relinquished just one set in posting a staggering 10-0 record in Barcelona finals. He captured a 71st tour-level crown and 51st on clay, firing 14 winners and saving the lone break point faced. He was only broken twice in 47 service games throughout the week.

The Spaniard capped a record-breaking two-week stretch, which saw him become the first player to win 10 titles at a tour-level event in Monte-Carlo and repeat the feat on his native clay of Barcelona. He has won 20 of 21 sets thus far on the European clay-court swing.
