Who's Your Daddy? Monte Carlo Review

The first Masters Series event on clay reached its conclusion yesterday, and told us a familiar tale. Here’s what we learned from the past week, much of which we knew already.

Undisputed – Rafael Nadal. 20 years old. 5 clay Masters Series titles. 67 matches unbeaten on clay. Sets lost in Monte Carlo this year – none. King of Clay. You get the picture, don’t you?

White-flag Roger? – During Sunday’s final, arguably for the first time in their five encounters on clay, Roger Federer looked resigned to defeat during periods of the second set. Has frustration finally boiled over for the world number one? Rafael Nadal stands between him and tennis immortality and Monte Carlo showed us that Federer is as far away from Nadal on clay as he has been to date. Federer had not looked particularly impressive throughout the week, although showed signs of improvement in his matches with David Ferrer and Juan Carlos Ferrero. That progression came to a grinding halt against Nadal, with the Spaniard yet again imposing his will on the match at the most pivotal moments and took what proved to be a crucial first set lead. Suddenly all talk of a calendar year Grand Slam has died a death, for the time being at least, as it’s hard to see past Rafael Nadal for the French Open in anyone’s book.
