Rafa takes Paribas Open title

Welcome back to hardcourt tennis Rafael Nadal!  Rafa defeated Juan Martin del Potro today, 4 – 6, 6 – 4, 6 -3 to take his first hardcourt title in over a year.  Rafa looks to be in fine form but he will skip the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami next week (Roger Federer will be absent as well).  Del Potro was on a roll, defeating Andy Murray in the quarters and Novak Djokovic in the semis but Nadal was just too much in the second and third set as the big Argentine began to tire.  The sun was shining, the sky was blue and the temperature was around 92 degrees.  Earlier, in the women’s final, Sharapova defeated Wozniacki, 6 – 2, 6 -2 to win her first title since the French Open last May.
