NADAL RALLIES FOR FOURTH MADRID CROWN; NESTOR/ZIMONJIC DENY BRYANS' REPEAT
    World No. 1 Nadal captured his 27th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title on Sunday as he fought back from a set and a break down.
    The 27 year old became the first player to win four titles in the Spanish capital, adding to his victories in 2005 (d. Ljubicic), 2010 (d. Federer) and 2013 (d. Wawrinka).
    Now with 63 tour-level crowns, the 27-year-old Nadal moves to standalone sixth on the Open Era title leaderboard, pulling to within one title of equalling Bjorn Borg and Pete Sampras.
    Nishikori was contesting his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final and saw his run of 14 successive wins come to an end.
    Nestor and Zimonjic captured their 26th ATP World Tour team title Sunday as they defeated World No. 1 pairing Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, ending the Americans' 24-match winning streak.
    Victory takes the 41-year-old Nestor to 84 tour-level titles, giving him sole ownership of third place in the Open Era doubles title leaderboard, behind the Bryans.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Nadal:
"Winning at home is always more special than winning anywhere. Having the chance to play in front of your home crowd... is unforgettable for me. This city gives me a lot. This is a very important victory for me."

Nishikori: "There is a lot of confidence I get from this tournament by beating [Ferrer] in three sets and playing well in the final today. It's going to be very exciting at [Roland Garros] because I never feel like this on clay."

Nestor
: "Today we played amazing. I think that's the most important thing, playing well on the big occasion. It's always important to at least stay close. Today we were fortunate to get ahead. The best thing is that we had some touch situations on serve and we fought through it. We've been resilient all year and it's nice to play our best match."

Zimonjic: "It's always a big challenge to play the best in the world. They've been the best in the world for many years and hold many records. To be on the same court with Daniel, Mike and Bob is a great honour. They are the three best players in doubles. They won the most titles. It's always great to win a [ATP World Tour] Masters 1000, especially when we play like we did today."
