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."

the monte carlo final shows how closely fed and nadal are on clay. a few points either way and roger could have prevailed. nadel hits with tremendous force.

Hi, Roger
Yes, it was disappointing that you lost, and losing is no fun at all, and it is your job - playing tennis and trying to win matches. But, losing to World No. 2 is not a shame actually. I'm looking forward to watching you play and win in Rome.

Hi, Roger: Perhaps before you play Rafa again you might watch some of those matches you WON against him last year - you WON 3 or 4 in a row against Rafa, including an exhibition match - they were fantastic matches too! Just don't get discouraged next ti

I just had to post once more after reading some of this stuff and WOW! Some fans on this website really need a life! Roger has to be really freaked out by all of this "I love you stuff" God, what is that all about???

The guy is only a human. Not so

Hi Roger,
I've been an avid fan of yours for several years. It is a joy to watch you play.
I would just like to leave an observation regarding your clay court challenge to Nadal. I'm a tennis teacher and have spent a lot of time on clay courts. I d

Hi Roger,

Hope you are doing well and getting ready for some more clay court action soon!

It's ok to feel a bit disappointed at your loss to Rafa last week, but there is always next time you know! Maybe you need to take more chances and risks to win

Dearest Roger

You lost to Nadal who everyone knows is the King of clay. However you have had some really close matches on clay and you have improved.

I know you can beat him on Clay if you believe you can do it.

From your eyes in your last fe
