World No.2 Roger Federer ended his title drought, defeating World No.1 Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-4 in the final of Madrid.
Federer earned his first title since triumphing in Basel on October 2008 (d. Nalbandian). The Swiss was contesting his 80th final with a 58-22 record after capturing his 15th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy. American Andre Agassi holds the all-time record of 17 with Federer and Nadal tied on 15.
The 27 year-old was contesting his second final of the year after losing to Nadal at the Australian Open in January. The victory over the World No.1 marks his first win against a top 4 player since defeating Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the US Open last year.
