Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal has been successful in his bid of winning the 10th Barcelona Open title after overcoming Austria's Dominic Thiem in the final. The Spaniard lost just five games to the world number nine in an hour and 30 minutes of action on Sunday 6-4 6-1.

Thiem had a game point on his serve to make it 5-5 in the first set but wasn't able to convert the same. The fourth seed then went on to lose that game and the set opening set eventually. Nadal came out firing in the following set, winning the last five games of the match to clinch the win.

Former world number one Nadal converted 3-of-8 of his break-point chances in the match while saving Thiem's only break point try. The head-to-head record between the two now sees Nadal having a 3-1 edge over Thiem. The 2017 Barcelona Open men's singles champion didn't drop a single set on his way to winning the tournament. He had to beat five opponents during the week.

Nadal's great season continues

Rafa Nadal has featured in five ATP singles finals so far during the 2017 tennis season.

The world number five has bounced back big time after losing the final of the Australian Open, Acapulco, and Miami earlier this season. The 30-year-old has won two titles in as many weeks, having won last week's Monte Carlo Masters as well.

Next up for the 14-time Grand Slam champion should be the upcoming Madrid Masters, May 07-14. Nadal will be bidding to win his fifth Madrid crown as he is a four-time champion there. He hasn't made it all the way at the Madrid event since 2014. On the other side, Thiem remains on one ATP singles title earned this season. The 23-year-old went all the way earlier this year, in February, to claim the Rio de Janeiro title.

The top favorite wins it all

World number 14 Lucas Pouille defeated Great Britain's Aljaz Bedene to win the inaugural edition of the Hungarian Gazprom Open in Budapest. The number one seed in the tournament had no much problems against the qualifier in the final, losing just four games 6-3 6-1.

France's Pouille jumped out to an early 5-1 lead in the opening set before clinching the same with a 6-3 result.

After losing the first game of the second set to Bedene, the Frenchman went on to win six games in a row, and eventually the match.

Pouille and Bedene have met twice so far in their respective careers, with Pouille having a 2-0 head-to-head record over the Briton. The 23-year-old Frenchman now has two ATP singles titles in the collection. He went all the way in front of his home fans in Metz at the end of last year's season to win his first ATP singles title.

World number 68 has yet to win an ATP title in his career.
