March 3 (Bloomberg) -- Spain’s Rafael Nadal defeated compatriot David Ferrer in straight sets in the final of tennis’s Mexican Open yesterday for his second title in three competitions since returning from injury.

He beat the three-time defending champion and world No. 4 6-0, 6-2 in 65 minutes in Acapulco for his 38th clay-court title. Previously he’d come second in Vina del Mar, Chile, and won an event in Sao Paulo.

Nadal, now ranked No. 5, was out seven months with a knee injury.

“I feel good being back on court,” he told reporters. “I have to thank my family and everyone involved in my rehabilitation. It has been a difficult time over the last few months.”

Also yesterday, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia beat Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 7-5, 6-3 to win the Dubai Open.

Today, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic defeated Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the U.S. 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the final of the WTA Malaysian Open.
