Nadal looks for Monte Carlo profit

Men's Tennis, Last updated:


Rafael Nadal cannot see any reason why he should not end his trophy drought at the Monte Carlo Masters.

The world number three, who is chasing a sixth straight title, has not collected a piece of silverware in 11 months because of a stop-start year curtailed by injury.
However, the popular Spaniard return to his favourite surface of clay off the back of an encouraging run of form on the American hard-courts.
Four-time French Open champion Nadal is a possible opponent for Andy Murray, who he beat in the semi-finals last year, should both players make it to the last four.
He says he is feeling good about his game for the first time in a while and is pleased with his progress.
"I have played well in all the tournaments this year," said Nadal.
"I haven't won yet, but I was in contention all the time. In Indian Wells, I was playing a very good tournament. I played a terrible match in the semi-final [against Andy Roddick], but I played the rest of the matches at a very high level. And in Miami, too, I played well."
Nadal will face Eduardo Schwank of Argentina or Thiemo De Bakker of the Netherlands in his opening match at the Monte Carlo Country Club.
