Nadal equals titles record

RAFAEL NADAL won a record-equalling 46th clay-court title and his first on any surface since last June by brushing aside Juan Monaco in the final of the Argentina Open presentado por Buenos Aires Ciudad.

Nadal's 6-4 6-1 victory in a little under an hour and a half saw him draw level with Guillermo Vilas for the number of titles won on clay.

The Spaniard struggled in the second half of least season with a wrist injury which was followed by a bout of appendicitis, and he has been working his way back to full fitness ever since.
