Rafael Nadal hits a tweener during his finals win on Sunday at the Barcelona Open

Remember when Rafael Nadal was the battered champion that some thought might never return to the form that has picked up 11 Grand Slam titles in his career? Yeah, that isn't exactly what has happened.

Nadal returned to tennis in February, and hasn't just hit the ground running, he's blown the game wide open. Since coming back, Nadal has reached the finals in all six events he has started, winning four of them including the Barcelona Open on Sunday.

His 6-4, 6-3 win was impressive, but it was this tweeter shot he hit late in the first set that was easily the shot of the day.

Nadal came in, Nicolas Almagro lobbed one over his head, and Nadal retreated, pounding it back down the line between his legs and eventually winning the point.
