Rafael Nadal Defeats Andy Murray To Enter The Monte Carlo Masters Final
Spanish professional tennis player and eight-time winner Rafael Nadal made a spectacular come-back from a set down to beat Britain’s Andy Murray to reach the Monte Carlo Masters final.
Andy Murray took the first set 6-2 after he broke twice, but could not withstand the Spaniard’s prowess and accuracy to lose the next two 6-4 6-2. It would be recalled that 28-year-old Murray was in spectacular form in 2015 having defeated Nadal for the first time on clay in Madrid Masters final.
His hopes of being only the third player to earn back-to-back victories over the world number five on the surface were dashed in a brutal two-and-a-half-hour encounter. As a result, Nadal’s has claimed his seventh over Murray in eight meetings on clay and puts him into his 100th ATP World Tour final. Nadal will now face the winner between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils in the final.
