Rafael Nadal holds up the trophy after winning the Mexico Open in Acapulco.

Rafael Nadal blasted past top-seed and defending champion David Ferrer 6-0, 6-2 in Saturday’s final of the Mexican Open in a powerful performance that indicated he has quickly returned to near his best after a long-term knee injury.

Ferrer was a three-time defending champion and had won 19 straight matches in this event, but he could find no answer to Nadal, losing to his Spanish compatriot in just one hour and five minutes.

The women’s final was similarly one-sided with Italy’s Sara Errani beating Carla Suarez-Navarro of Spain 6-0, 6-4.
