Rafa has the best record on clay in the professional era and has won 41 of his 47 finals. He also has the most Masters titles with 24, three ahead of Roger Federer.

It was Rafa’s eighth straight final since recovering from a nagging case of tendinitis in his left knee that sidelined him for seven months.

Congratulations Rafa! We are overjoyed and glad that you are well. Now on to Roland Garros! VAM8S RAFA!
