Ruthless Rafa Shows No Compassion in Monte Carlo Final

Rafael Nadal was in fine form this afternoon as he run out a comfortable winner over friend and fellow compatriot Fernando Verdasco in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters.

The world number 3 got off to a flying start by breaking Fernando Verdasco's opening serve to love before holding his own. Rafael Nadal raced away to win the opening set 6-0 which included winning 13/18 points on his opponent's serve and facing no break points.

Fernando Verdasco won his first game at the start of the second set but that was the only competitive part of the final as he was unable to cope with Nadal after that, as he took 6 straight games on course to a 6-0 6-1 victory. All 5 of Fernando Verdasco's break point opportunities came in the sixth game of the second set, including a winner in one of the point of the tournaments. But failing to take any typified this match as back-to-back points against Nadal were hard to come by.

Rafael Nadal had been playing well all week but he saved his best for this final as he won his record sixth straight Monte Carlo Masters title. His first title since Rome in May last year. He is back to his best, judging him by this tournament. Excellent forehand shots and freely moving around the court as he prepares to win back his French Open title in a few weeks times.

Our tennis betting expert tipped Rafael Nadal to win in two sets and won't be surprised by this performance and result off the back of his near-perfect Monte Carlo Tips this week (only 1 wrong).
