Nadal wins 5th straight Monte Carlo title

Rafael Nadal has proved that a number 1 deserves to be next to his name. He beat both Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic to win his 5th consecutive Monte Carlo title on Sunday. Nadal won the 1st set against the Serb with ease, but Djokovic fought back and dominated the 2nd. The 1st game of the 3rd set lasted 14 minutes, but Nadal held and fought off 3 break points. That game proved to be the turning point, as the Spaniard took 5 of the next 6 games to win the title.
