Nole is enjoying a winning streak of 29 matches on Chinese soil but next faces Roger Federer, who beat Julien Benneteau 76 60, and I must say that as a Federer lover I have to bet on him to end the Serb's winning form.

Rafa has an amazing 59-1 record at Roland Garros and it looks like as long as he is healthy noone will take this title away from him.

“That’s just amazing … That’s more than I can even dream about,” Nadal said, “but here we are today. [As a kid wanting to be a professional tennis player,] I never thought about something like this. I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who supported me throughout my career. Without them I would not be here today.”

"I never like to compare years, but it's true that this year means something very special for me," Nadal added. "When you have a period of time like I had (7 month out of the tour due to knee injuries), you realize that you don't know if you will have the chance to be back here with this trophy another time."

"Rafael was better than me," said Ferrer. "He didn't make mistakes."
