The King of Clay recorded a 6-1, 6-3 win over Andy Murray’s conqueror  – Albert Ramos-Vinolas to win the elite tournament for a record 10th time in his career.

The 30 year-old, gave no opportunity to his fellow countryman, who was making his first Masters series final, as he dominated the final, in his preparation to land the French Open for a 10th time.

Nadal, in lifting the title, also recorded his 50th clay court title, overtaking the great Guillermo Vilas. “It really is unbelievable. To win 10 times at such an important event like Monte Carlo is something difficult to describe my feelings. Every year has been a different feeling,” Nadal told the official atp world tour website.

Ahead of defending his Barcelona title this week, where Andy Murray has accepted a wildcard into the event, to get more clay practise, Nadal will go into the event full of confidence after another major win. “I feel lucky to keep playing tennis and being healthy all those years,” he added.
