He had said that playing Nadal would be like "receiving a free tennis lesson" and although he held in the opening game, the gulf in class between the two players quickly shone through. "Hopefully I can keep coming back for many more years to come".

Nadal has now won 11 times at the Barcelona Open and is currently enjoying a run of 46 set wins without reply on his favourite clay surface. Tsitsipas was the first Greek to make it to an ATP final since Nicholas Kalogeropoulos in 1973. His win on Sunday was greeted by ticker-tape and a video review of all his titles on the centre court in Barcelona which now bears his name. "You have a great future and I wish you great success", added Nadal of an opponent who will become just the second teenager in the world top 50 next week after Canada's Denis Shapovalov.

Greek 19-year-old Tsitsipas stormed into his first ATP final by beating Spain's World No. 11 Pablo Carreno Busta 7-5, 6-3.

Something awesome, very hard to imagine winning 11 Monte-Carlos, 11 Barcelonas, I'm just enjoying playing every week.

After the win, Nadal dived into a pool at the venue along with some of the tournament's ball boys and ball girls. He has won a record 54 titles on dirt.

"The only bad thing is that I am getting old", Nadal said after lifting aloft the trophy.

"I knew the chances to win were small, but my confidence was rising in every match and while I was expecting a little better today, congratulations to Rafa", Tsitsipas said. With injuries being a constant in his career, a pain-free Nadal is clearly enjoying himself now as Fleming hailed him as a phenomenon. "You had an fantastic tournament".
