Just before clinching his 47th career clay title, Rafael Nadal engaged with Fabio Fognini in a war of words during today’s Hamburg final.
From Tennis Channel, the issue was Fognini’s muttering during Rafa’s service games that caused the conflict.
Nadal won the match 75, 75 for his third title of the season, and keep his streak of having won at least once European clay title since 2004 intact.
He also ended a 2-match losing streak to the flamboyant and combustible Italian. Nadal has now won two of his last four tournaments, both in Germany.
