Nadal the Master of Clay; Jelena Jankovic wins in Rome

Roger Federer might received the most support here at Hamburg but still nothing can stop Rafael Nadal from winning the Hamburg Masters, the only major clay-court title which is still missing from his impressive collection.

Nadal beat Federer the defending champion 7-5, 6-7, 6-3 in less than 3 hours. In the first two sets, Federer lead Nadal by 5-2 but somehow Nadal fought back and win the first set and almost did it again in the second.

Now Nadal has raise their head-to-head to 10-6.

In Rome, Jelena Jankovic had a splashing time (with Italian Ferraelle spring water - sparkling bottled water) defending the WTA Rome International by beating Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-2.
