2017 Madrid Open Men's Singles Final - Rafael Nadal Thumps Dominic Thiem to Win Fifth Title Sunday May 14,2017

Rafael Nadal consolidated his flying start to the clay-court season by taking a record-extending fifth Madrid Open title on Sunday May 14,2017, battling past a determined Dominic Thiem to win 7-6(10-8) 6-4.

The Spaniard, who snapped a seven-match losing streak against Novak Djokovic to win their semi-final on Saturday, was given a much sterner test by Thiem than in last month's final of the Barcelona Open.
Nadal had easily beaten Thiem 6-4 6-1 in Barcelona but got an early scare when he was broken in Sunday's third game, soon falling 3-1 behind as the Austrian held.
