Nadal floors Ferrer to win sixth Barcelona title

Nadal followed up his victory over Ferrer in last week's Monte Carlo Masters final with a display of brutal hitting and near-impeccable defense to become the first player in the Open era to win two tournaments at least six times.

"It's incredible to come back here to my tournament and my fans after not being able to play last year," Nadal said in an interview with Spanish television before hoisting aloft the huge Conde de Godo trophy.
