Rafael Nadal marches on towards 11th Monte Carlo crown

Novak Djokovic

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal will look to capture his 11th Monte Carlo Masters title on Sunday when he faces Kei Nishikori in the final. Nadal was ruthless in capitalising, winning the first four games and giving the fourth seed a mountain to climb.

The second finalist will be confirmed later in the day, when third seed Alexander Zverev takes on an improving Kei Nishikori.

This is published unedited from the ANI feed. In the upcoming round, Nadal is set to take on Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov, who defeated Belgium's David Goffin 6-4, 7-6 (5) in quarters.

It was not the vintage display that saw Dominic Thiem swatted aside on Friday, but Nadal - who is favourite to win the French Open for an 11th time next month - still had plenty in his locker to end Dimitrov's impressive run to the last four. It has been a great day for me, and a very good result against a very hard rival.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion held for 5-4 and then Dimitrov cracked, serving consecutive double faults and hitting a wild forehand long to trail 15-40.

Djokovic has played at four tournaments this season as he tries to return to form following two years of struggles with a persistent right elbow injury.

The 28-year-old's victory over Zverev, arguably the best young player on the ATP tour, is encouraging, but the Japanese star may be suffering some fatigue after also needing three sets to defeat Andreas Seppi and No. 3 Marin Cilic.

Djokovic will be joined by top-ranked and 10-time victor Rafael Nadal at the outdoor clay-court tournament.
