Nadal looking for 7th Barcelona crown

Updated: April 24, 2012

The ATP clay court season moves on to Barcelona this week with Rafa Nadal the defending champion gunning for his 7th win in the tournament. Nadal fresh off yet another success (8) at Monte Carlo is looking to build on his early momentum leading up to the French Open. Nadal is quite simply the greatest clay court player of all time and is the favourite to defend his title in the absence of Djokovic and Federer.
His only realistic challenge will come from last years beaten finalist Ferrer and no. 2 seed Andy Murray who has shown significant improvement on his least favourite surface.
Spanish representation is strong with Lopez, Almagra, Verdasco and Ferrer all in the top 10 seedings, not to mention Nadal.
