Rafael Nadal hits a tweener en route to eighth Barcelona title

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0xR1agkVZ8

Rafael Nadal won his record eighth title at the Barcelona Open on Sunday with a 6-4, 6-3 win over fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, and he did it with style, hitting this "tweener" to get back into the rally late in the first set. Since launching his comeback from a seven-month injury absence in February, Nadal has reached the final of all six tournaments he's played and is the first player to win four titles this season.

He also gave us this trophy pose, which might be the best one of the season so far.
