8th Time Lucky For Nadal

Rafael Nadal won the Monte Carlo Masters for the 8th consecutive year and proved 8th time round that he could end his losing streak to Novak Djokovic winning 6-3 6-1 in the final!

While this win has been a long time coming, the amount of emotion from Rafa still surprised me, he looked so elated after the match you could tell how much this win means to him. While Novak is still number 1, he has a great number of points to defend throughout the clay season, if Nadal can repeat the superior clay court game we saw yesterday then will the King of Clay enter Roland Garros with Rome and Madrid under his belt too? Although it’s still premature to say Rafa can beat Novak in a Wimbledon final as Djokovic’s error count was appalling and he wasnt particularly aggressive but its definitely a step in the right direction for the world number 2!
