Revisiting all of Rafael Nadal's 3 Acapulco titles
- A flashback of Nadal's 3 Acapulco titles.
#2 2013: Beats David Ferrer 6-0, 6-2
Making his first appearance in Acapulco in 8 years, Nadal reeled off five consecutive straight-set wins over a trio of Argentines - Diego Schwartzman, Martin Alund, and Leonardo Mayer - and two compatriots - Nicolas Almagro and David Ferrer - to lift his second title at the tournament in as many attempts.
Just like it was in 2005, success in Acapulco fueled another trophy-laden season for the Spaniard as Nadal lifted 10 titles in the 2013 season to finish as the year-end No. 1 for the third time in his career.
It was also the last time the Acapulco Open was held on a claycourt, before transitioning to hardcourt from the 2014 edition onwards.Published 01 Mar 2020, 14:41 IST
