Mutua Madrid Open, Madrid, Spain

No. 2 seed Andy Murray won his first-ever Masters 1000 title on clay in Madrid, Spain on Sunday, defeating No. 3 seed Rafa Nadal 6-3, 6-2 in 88 minutes.

Never losing his serve during the straight set affair, Murray stepped on the court with great confidence after winning the title in Munich, Germany on Monday. Striking three aces and winning 81 percent of his second serve points, Murray improved to 30-5 on the season and captured his first-ever victory against Nadal on clay.

Nadal, who was in search of his second title of the year, continued his poor run of form which has seen him not win a major clay-court title in 2015. Both Nadal and Murray will now head to the Roma Masters in Italy for the final warm up event for the French Open.
