Nadal wins second Wimbledon title

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has won his second Wimbledon title, beating Tomas Berdych in the final in straight sets.

The world number one was far too strong for his opponent, winning the match 6-3 7-5 6-4 in just over two hours.

Nadal was Wimbledon champ in 2008, but the Spaniard couldn't defend his title last year because he was injured.

It wasn't all bad for Britain at Wimbledon this year. Liam Broady and Tom Farquharson picked up the trophy in the boys doubles.

Nadal was so happy he fell to the ground after playing the winning shot.

He said: "After a difficult year for me, missing the tournament last year, this year I came back and to have this trophy in my hands is more than a dream."

It's been an amazing year for Nadal so far. He also won the French Open in June, and now has eight Grand Slam titles.

Over in the boys doubles, Liam and Tom beat Lewis Burton and George Morgan who are also from Britain.

Tom said: "I don't think either of us know how to explain what it feels like to win this."

He added: "All that support was unbelievable and it was really important to have all those people there to support you and back you."

It's the first time a British pair has won the title since 1995.
