The world number three Spaniard powered past his rival to sixth straight championship at Monte Carlo.

Besides becoming the only player to win six consecutive titles at the same tournament in the post-1968 Open era, Nadal ended his dry spell by clinching his first title after his victory at the Rome Masters in May 2009.

“It was emotional for me today; it was my best week for a long time," Nadal is quoted as saying in media reports.
