Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams firmed up their credentials as French Open favourites by sweeping to victory in Madrid. Nadal eased to his fifth title in just seven tournaments since returning from a seven-month injury layoff due to tendinitis in his left knee to claim his third title in the Spanish capital. 

Williams, meanwhile, has a second title at Roland Garros firmly in her sights as she claimed a title on the red clay for the first time since that triumph 11 years ago with win over Maria Sharapova.
