Nadal continued his dream run of the season by beating Fernando Gonzalez of Chile 6-3 7-6 6-2 at Beijing. He now hold the honour of winning first gold medal in tennis for Spain. Nowhere in my best dreams I can imagine something like what I did this year, Nadal said. I know how difficult it is to win these things, and especially here, because you only have one chance every four years.
He dominated Gonzalez from the start, broke his serve in the second game. He raced to win the first set 6-3. Gonalez recollected himself and had three set pts 6-5, 40-15 but failed to convert them. He pushed a volley wide and landed a forehand in the net. The Chilean made five unforced errors in the tiebreaker and Nadal clinched commanding lead.
Nadal whipped a backhand passing shot to break at love for a 3-1 lead in the final set, and managed to hold for 5-2.He needed four match points to close out the victory, ripping one last forehand that Gonzalez could barely reach. Nadal collapsed to his back in jubilation.
