2017 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters SF Rafael Nadal bt. David Goffin  6/3 6/1

Next - Albert Ramos-Vinolas

Rafael Nadal will attempt to win an incredible 10th Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters crown on Sunday against fellow  Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

“It’s tough to believe that I’m in a final again here. It’s unbelievable news for me. It’s another great event. Having all these great results since the beginning of the season allows me to still have a position in the top eight. That's a very important thing for me,” said Nadal. "I'm able to start the clay-court season playing a final in one of the most important events of the year. It’s a very special place for me and this is something that makes me feel very happy. Very excited about it.”

“He's (Ramos-Vinolas) playing better than ever. He's winning huge matches during the whole week. He's playing with big confidence, with great spirit and fight, overcoming tough situations in every match and playing a high level of tennis all the time,” said Nadal. “I know that I need to be at my best to keep having chances, to fight for another title here. That's what I am looking for.”


"The proof that I believe on what David thinks when I see that David marks the ball,' explained Nadal about the controversial call. "I went to pick up the towel, preparing for the next game. You can check on the TV.

"When the umpire goes down and says the ball is good, what I can say? No, the ball is out. That's why there is an umpire there. If the ball is on my side, I see the ball is in, I give the ball to the other side. There is realistic, no?" Nadal commented.

"I understand that situation didn't help him," said Nadal. "But we cannot be hypocrites and say in a tennis match that a point of 3-2 change everything. In tennis there is a lot of points, no? Is not in football that one decision in some minute make the difference. In tennis, we play so many points.

"It's true that you never know what's going on. If that's 4-2, I don't know if the ball was good or was out. I really don't care because I know I didn't make anything wrong. I was hundred percent correct. That's it.

"I am sorry for him. But I believe that at the end of the day he's happy that he played a great event. He's playing great level of tennis since beginning of the season. He's in a good position to fight for important things because he has the level and he has the confidence," said Nadal.
