He missed out on the title last year - and had been struggling with injuries - so he said the win was really special. It looks like he can't believe he's done it.

He beat Robin Soderling from Sweden 6-4 6-2 6-4 to win the title. It doesn't look like there were many hard feelings!

Soderling said the players still get on: "I have nothing against Rafa I think he's a great player. He definitely has the chance to be number one for a long time if he plays like this."

It's been a tough year for Nadal though, who had to drop out of his quarter-final against Andy Murray at the Australian Open because of knee problems.
