Nadal focuses on positives after Murray mauling

French Open champ Rafa Nadal slumped to one of his worst defeats in a clay final on Sunday but said his week in Madrid had been positive despite losing his Masters crown to Andy Murray in a crushing 6-3, 6-2 reverse.

“The most important thing is the feelings I have and this week I had much better positive feelings than a few weeks ago so that’s very important for me,” Nadal told a news conference. “There is a chance for me now to have another good week in Rome like I had here,” he added.
