Congrats Rafa - 6 Monte Carlo titles!!

by RAF (U13830415) 18 April 2010
comment on the article

Supreme performance, just total domination from beginning to end. Looks a lot more confident on his preferred surface which was to be expected I guess - hopefully this will propel him to greater things. It'll be interesting to see how he performs at Rome which is a much faster surface.

I don't think Verdasco played that badly tbh, yes he played poorly and made many UE's but he still made a lot of winners as well. He was just outplayed and was up against a form player and by far the best clay-courter on tour. I felt very sorry for him.

Some brilliant points in this match though imo, I enjoyed watching it, there were some great rallies which isn't reflected in the score-line, especially in the second set.

Very glad to see Nadal in such devastating form again, I hope he can keep it up. We could be in for an excellent set of Slams this year if so!

Welcome back RAFFA. Murray in the doldrums yet again (he will not win any major titles this year)

Nadal played well, so yes, 'he's back', but for how long?
I have an unpleasant feeling he is just adding a bit more to his bank account total before finally retiring. sadface

"Overrated rubbish!"

------------------------

Take a 2 - 0 lead when your fighting for the title and end up losing 3 - 2 to Wigan.

"Overrated rubbish!" describes your team Arsenal perfectly.

Great to see Rafa back to his good old self. I am also a big fan of Federer but I think all tennis fans can agree that the tour has not been nearly as exciting since Rafa started getting injured and generally losing his confidence. I really hope he can keep this level up so we can hopefully see a repeat of the 2008 RG and WB finals!! Vamos RAFAAAAA
