Monte Carlo Results

World number 4, Andy Murray, gave Rafael Nadal some trouble in the semifinals in Monte Carlo on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to derail the king of clay. Nadal came out firing, winning the first set 6-2, but Murray closed the gap in the second. Nadal eventually took the second, and the match. Nadal will meet Novak Djokovic, who fought off a valiant effort from Stanislas Wawrinka. Wawrinka took the 1st set, but Djokovic sweeped the last 2 with ease. In the final, Nadal will be going for his 5th consecutive Monte Carlo trophy.
