Rafa beats Roger in straight sets

22.04.2007 | Tennis

Rafael Nadal beat Roger 6-4, 6-4 Sunday to win his third straight Monte Carlo Masters title and extend his winning streak on clay to 67. It is his eighth Masters Series title and he has not been beaten on clay since April 2005.

 

The left-handed Spaniard, who did not drop a set in the tournament, is the first man since Ilie Nastase (1971-1973) to win the Monte Carlo title for the third year in a row.

 

"It is an honour to be up against Roger here in Monte Carlo and to win for the third time," Rafa admitted after the win.

 

Roger made 38 unforced errors - half on his forehand - and the Spaniard won on his second match point when the world number one sent a backhand long.

 

"Congratulations to Rafa," said Roger. "What he has achieved is fantastic. I will try again to beat him in Rome, Hamburg and here in Monte Carlo next year."

There is a saying the Swiss have in skiing: Either the mountain impresses you or you impress the mountain. So which will it be, Roger? Can you impress RG? I think so. But I do wonder about that new racket of yours. I can read enough Italian to trans

penso che il problema dei tuoi errori contro Nadal sia dovuti alla nuova racchetta. Torna ad usare la NCode six one

Creo que pierdes al querer jugar como él. El es defensor tu eres atacante. Si los haces desde 3 m atras de la línea sera dificil..Solo juega como Federer y lo venceras no importa la superficie. Eres el mejor recuerdalo cunado lo tengas en frente. ¡¡Roma l
