Result: Rafael Nadal clinches ninth Monte Carlo Masters title

Rafael Nadal overcomes Gael Monfils in three sets to win the Monte Carlo Masters for a ninth time.

Rafael Nadal won the Monte Carlo Masters for the ninth time in his career this afternoon courtesy of a 7-5 5-7 6-0 victory over Gael Monfils.

The first two sets on the clay were closely-fought contests, with both players claiming one apiece.

However, it was in the third and final set that Nadal gained the upper hand as he raced into a 5-0 lead.

Monfils then served looking to avoid a bagel, only to be broken for a third time by Nadal as he produced a powerful forehand winner on Championship point.

The victory will be viewed as perfect preparation for the Spaniard as he gears up to battle for a 10th French Open crown next month.
