Following his troubles at Wimbledon and the loss to Dustin Brown, Majorca's Rafael Nadal is back on the victory trail, grabbing his third title of the season in beating Italian Fabio Fognini this afternoon in Hamburg.

This was revenge for Nadal, as Fognini has beaten him twice this year, and the Italian made things tough for Nadal in a match that lasted two-and-a-half hours before Nadal completed a straight sets win 7-5, 7-5 and claimed the German Open Hamburg.
