Nadal Wins Eighth Straight Monte Carlo Title

Rafa won his eighth straight Monte Carlo title after beating Djokovic 6–3, 6–1 in the final yesterday. Nadal hadn't won a match against Djokovic in quite a while, so this was a much needed win for him. 

Although the score suggests a fairly one-sided match, Djokovic was certainly not at his best after learning of his grandfather's death during the tournament, so I'm not sure this is necessarily an indicator of what's to come for the remainder of the clay court season. However, regardless of the situation, eight years in a row of winning the same event is pretty awesome, so good job Rafa...and I really hope Fed doesn't wind up in your half at the French.
