Stat of the Day

72 – The number of consecutive victories Rafael Nadal has on clay after defeating Guillermo Canas 6-3, 6-4 for his third straight Barcelona Open championship Sunday. He joins three others to win three times at Barcelona and ties Mats Wilander‘s record of three straight championships. His current streak of 72 on clay dates back to April 2005 and crushes the previous men’s clay-court win streak of 53, set by Guillermo Vilas in 1977. In fact, Nadal has been so dominant that he has not even dropped a set on clay since top-ranked Roger Federer took one in the French Open final last year.
