Rafa and Maria Sweep the Clay

Rafael Nadal looks like he's holding a prop from "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" today, his prize for winning the Barcelona Open. His straight-sets win over David Ferrer made him the first player in the Open era to win two tournaments seven times.

Meanwhile, Maria Sharapova was finally able to break her string of final-round losses, with a crushing victory over Victoria Azarenka to win the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. I'll bet she wishes she could have played like that at Wimbledon or Down Under, but the car's still fun.
