Nadal wins third Barcelona title in a row with 72nd straight win on clay

Rafael Nadal won his third straight Open Seat Godo championship Sunday after beating 12th-seeded Guillermo Canas 6-3, 6-4. It was the Spaniard's 72nd consecutive win on clay.
The 21-year-old Nadal tied Mats Wilander's 23-year-old record of three straight championships and equaled Roy Emerson's and Manuel Orantes' record of three titles in Barcelona.
Nadal hasn't dropped a set since top-ranked Roger Federer won the first set of their French Open final last year.
