The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Sports -

Rafael Nadal claimed a record-ex­tend­ing 10th Monte Carlo Masters ti­tle as he geared up for his beloved French Open with a 6-1 6-3 vic­tory against fel­low Spa­niard Al­bert Ramos yes­ter­day.

The fourth seed, who is also tar­get­ing a 10th Roland Gar­ros tro­phy this year, was al­ways in com­mand as he claimed his first ATP ti­tle since tri­umph­ing in Barcelona a year ago. The 14-times grand slam cham­pion had won his two pre­vi­ous en­coun­ters against Ramos and the 15th seed failed to snap that run yes­ter­day.

“It has been an amaz­ing week on one of the most im­por­tant events on the tour. I played well here, which helps me a lot to start the clay­court sea­son with con­fi­dence,” said Nadal.
