FINALS REVIEW NADAL AND BRYANS WIN 23RD ATP WORLD TOUR MASTERS 1000 TITLES

    Rafael Nadal captured his 23rd ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy and his third title at the Mutua Madrid Open.
    The 26-year-old Nadal moved to joint second (with Thomas Muster) in the Open Era with 40 clay-court titles. Nadal, who is 40-6 overall in clay finals, now only trails fellow left-hander Guillermo Vilas (46).
    Nadal won his fifth title of 2013 from seven finals. It was his 55th tour-level crown overall.
    Bob and Mike Bryan won their fifth Madrid doubles title. It was their 87th career trophy and 23rd ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown (23-17 overall).
    The American twins added to their 2006-07, 2010-11 Madrid trophy haul with victory in 58 minutes.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Rafael Nadal:
"I'm very happy. I think I played the best match of the whole week today in the final. I had the idea to go out there and to [play] good [forehand] drives, to smack it hard, and try to get many points with my drive. Being able to play here in Madrid and being able to win in front of all my people is something really special. I'm very happy for everything that has happened. Forty titles on clay are far more than I ever dreamed of [winning]."

Stanislas Wawrinka:
"I think he started really well. Even if I'm playing my best tennis and [am] completely fresh, it's really, really tough to beat him. It was tough for me. The ball was flying. I didn't find out a way how to play my game [and] how to be aggressive on the court. He was also dictating the points."

Bob Bryan:
"It feels great to get another title here in Madrid. It's been a nice clay-court season so far and we're looking forward to two more big events on the dirt. The motivation is to do more of it. We love working hard and getting the pay-off. We're 35 and we're having fun."

Mike Bryan:
"Hats off to Bruno and Alex on a great tournament and a strong start to the year. We had to play really sharp to beat this team and hopefully we can all square off in many more big matches."
