Nadal failed to beat Djokovic in Monte Carlo
Spain’s Rafael Nadal’s luck finally ran out in Monte Carlo.
Novak Djokovic did the unthinkable on Sunday and stopped Nadal’s run of eight straight Monte Carlo Masters titles with a 6-2, 7-6 (7-1) victory in the final of the prestigious clay-court tournament.
Nadal had won 46 straight matches on the red clay of the Monte Carlo Country Club and carried a 48-1 mark into the final of the French Open tune-up. The only player ever to beat the Spanish superstar at this event prior to Sunday was Guillermo Coria in the third round of the 2003 tournament.
