"It's a very important day, a very happy day for me after a difficult year last year," Nadal
"It is really emotional for me to win a tournament with such a long history as Rome. See you next year."
"I am just enjoying the moment and valuing it more than ever because I know where we were just a few months ago," he said. "Being here a few months later with all I have achieved is really more than a dream."
Meanwhile, Serena Williams won her fourth consecutive tour title when she easily defeated Victoria Azarenka 6-1 6-3 to take the women's title. Serena last lost to Azarenka in the Doha final in February. This time Serena overpowered Azarenka, she hit nine aces and 41 winners in the two sets.
"It wasn't easy, nothing is ever easy. Last year I was feeling excellent on clay but didn't do that great at Roland Garros; this year I'm cautious and I want to work hard and stay focused and win every point I play, and not slack at all," Williams said.

Like game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat game 3 didn't lack of as Lebron said "not basketball plays."
Tensions went high again when at 9:29 in the second quarter, as LeBron James drives the ball Nazr Mohammed come from behind him and hugged him for an intentional foul. James, twisted and shoved Nazr to the ground that earned him a technical from Referee Joey Crawford. LeBron then immediately began to complain to the referee. Nazr jumped to his feet and hit back with a light shove to the chest that shockingly thrown a 6' 8" 249.1 lbs LeBron James five feet away. It was ridiculously funny. And the referees decided to eject Nazr after a review of the play. Seriously? how does the NBA employ a referee?
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau on post game said "From my angle I just saw a guy basically flopped, and I'm gonna leave it at that. We're well aware of what's going on. I'm watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I'm seeing is… We'll adjust accordingly." Thibodeau noticed inconsistent officiating in the Bulls' conference semifinal matchup with the Heat and that he saw LeBron flopped.

This is Mayweather first fight after serving his jail time for three months. He was convicted of domestic violence after beating his ex-wife. The score card for the 12 rounder were 117-111 for all the three judges in favour of Floyd.
Overall it was a slow and boring fight with little action. In the first round Guerrero was aggressive but Floyd seize control in the third round and later rounds just like every Mayweather fight.
In the eight round Mayweather hit Guerrero with a power punch that shocked and wobbled Guerrero. Mayweather continued with straight rights and counter punches that cut Guerrero eye.
Floyd Mayweather failed to knockout a clearly overwhelmed and over-matched Guerrero. This fight was a snooze fest.
