As Nadal continues to bid for his 11th Title in Monte Carlo, he is showing his relentless strength and a huge possibility of indeed walking out victorious.
So far he has shown nothing but victories in all rounds and has no signs of stopping. He is proving to be unstoppable despite being away for a while.
Let’s also not forget the clay surface is his stronghold and he happens to be very familiar with the environment. This might also be a contribution to his great success. However, he is an exceptionally great player and the type of surface wouldn’t matter. These are some of the highlights of the last match.
Nadal made speedy work of Aljaz Bedene with a two-set triumph in the second round of the game on Wednesday.
In the wake of accepting a bye through the first round of the competition, the Spaniard ignored Bedene 6-1 6-3 as he hopes to secure his eleventh title in Monte Carlo.
Following Novak Djokovic’s win on Court Rainier III before him, Nadal turned out firing right on time in spite of having not played on the circuit since suffering a hip damage in January’s Australian Open.
His two wins in Spain’s Davis Cup quarter-last triumph over Germany a weekend ago will have helped give him the certainty to begin quickly, and he hustled through the primary set 6-1.
Slovenia’s Bedene didn’t move over, yet at one of his most loved settings, Nadal was just too great to stop and wrapped up the second 6-3 easily. Following an extreme couple of months to begin the year, the Spaniard would savor another win at this competition.
After the game, he said, “It’s a very important one for me. It’s very important to start with a victory, that helps. And I’m going to try and keep going.”
He’ll confront 21-year-old Karen Khachanov in the following round after his 6-2 6-2 win against France’s Gilles Simon, and Nadal guaranteed he’ll be prepared.
“It’s going to be a very tough one. I’m going to need to be ready to play a very high intensity and a high level of tennis if I want to have success.”
