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."

Hi Roger
I was on holiday in my native land Kathmandu Nepal. Sorry to know that you lost to Rafa But remember that Clay is not your favourite surface and that you are improving all the time.
Best of luck next time specially in French open.

I love how you responded at the AO when everyone said that Roddick would have a great chance of beating you in the semis. It seems you have the opposite response when playing Rafa. Granted, Rafa is not Roddick, but it'd be nice to have the same mindset fo

Hi Roger,
Actually you were the better player in the first set. I don't know why you suddenly lost your concentration right after you missed the break chances. It looked similar to last french open final. You were much better in the first set but sudden
