Rafael Nadal raced to an 11th title at the Barcelona Open with victory against teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The young Greek has enjoyed the best week of his fledgling career to reach his first ATP Tour final but he was unable to trouble the clay-court master and went down 6-2 6-1 in just 78 minutes.
After winning an 11th Monte-Carlo Masters crown last week, Nadal extended his record to 19 consecutive victories on clay dating back to last year's French Open, all without dropping a set.
With Novak Djokovic still well short of his best and Nadal's other big rivals either absent or not on top form, it is no surprise he is the odds-on favourite to win the French Open for an 11th time in June.
Tsitsipas, the second youngest player in the top 100 behind Canadian Denis Shapovalov, found success with a few of the flashy shots that have marked him out as one to watch in more than one sense.
But he could not find the consistency to offer more than a fleeting challenge to Nadal, whose next goal will be the Madrid Masters, where he has only won five titles.
