Rafa Earns Straight Set Victory over Soderling for Abu Dhabi Championship

Rafael Nadal ended his two-match losing streak to Robin Soderling on Saturday by defeating the Swede in straight-sets to win the Abu Dhabi Capitala World Championships. The six-man exhibition featured Nadal, Soderling, Roger Federer, Nikolay Davydenko, David Ferrer and Stanislas Wawrinka. Following the Spaniard's 7-6 (3), 7-5 victory, he told the press, "I'm very happy. I played a very good match. I think Robin right now is one of the most difficult players on the tour to play against. His serve is incredible, he has a very good forehand, a very good backhand so it is difficult to stop him."

Roger Federer defeated Ferrer for third place, 7-5, 6-1.

The ATP Tour will officially begin on January 4th, with tournaments getting underway in Chennai, Brisbane and Doha.
