Nadal beats Berdych for 2nd Wimbledon title

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Rafael Nadal has swept Tomas Berdych in straight sets to win his second Wimbledon title and eighth Grand Slam championship.

The top-ranked Spaniard beat the 12th-seeded Czech 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 Sunday to reinforce his current status as the No. 1 player in the game.

Nadal broke four times and never lost serve in 15 service games.

It's the second time he has won the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back. He is now 5-0 in his last Grand Slam finals.

With eight Grand Slam titles, Nadal joins a list of greats that includes Andre Agassi, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Fred Perry and Ken Rosewall. He also has five French Open championships and one Australian Open title.
