Rafael Nadal hammers winner past Troicki

Rafael Nadal claimed the Stuttgart Open title with an impressive straight sets win over Viktor Troicki.

The Spaniard has shown signs of his usual dominance since switching to grass this week and he continued his Wimbledon preparations with a 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 victory over Troicki in Germany.

A worrying slump of form has seen Nadal slip to No 10 in the world rankings and his lengthy reign at the French Open was ended by a quarter-final defeat by Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros.
