Sao Paulo, Feb 17 (EFE).- Spain's Rafael Nadal beat Argentina's David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 Sunday in the final of the Brazil Open, notching his first title on the comeback trail from a serious knee injury.
"I hope this will be the beginning of a good start," Nadal told the crowd, which included his father, Sebastian, after the match.
The 26-year-old Nadal, the world No. 5, rolled over the 31-year-old Nalbandian, who is also mounting a comeback after a months-long absence from the ATP Tour, in the first set.
