Rafael Nadal is a Monte Carlo Master

Spain’s Rafael Nadal makes history by winning the Monte Carlo Masters title five times in a row on Sunday (April 19).

The 22-year-old defeated Serbia’s Novak Djokovic (blue shirt) 6-3 2-6 6-1 to retain his trophy. “Everyone can improve in every surface, no? No one is perfect. Sure, I can improve,” Rafael said. “I always work to improve because when you feel you can’t improve, it’s difficult to wake up and go on court and practice.”

“This tournament I didn’t serve very well. Especially the second serve was sometimes 120 kph (74 mph). So that’s [a] disaster,” Rafael said. “Yeah, I have to play more. Have to serve better.”

    But yes i agree with Anna, loved the match, love Rafa nad it was a deserved win, but Novak is such a cutie and so much fun.

  • Isa

    not really!

  • Verónica

    Here, the most important thing is what Rafa’s the big winner playing tennis.
    The act about If he’s “donkey-look alike” ugly, or something like that, is a stupid thing. He’s a very good player, so.. appreciates that!

    I’m tired about all that COWARD HATERS. Go away, jealous ‘people’!

    Bravo Rafa.

  • Isaac

  • susan

    Thanks Jared for posting this!! I am a huge Rafa fan and was thrilled to see him continue his clay winning streak…even not playing 100% he is hard to beat on the red clay…let’s hope he can win his 5th straight French title :-)

  • jdub

    i love Nadal…he’s tooo too cute

  • ellen

    Good job Rafael, he’s the best tennis player……!! But I’m Novak’s fan and he was cute and awesome, too bad he didn’t have a chance!! btw Rafael looks weird and did anyone notice that he was grabing his ass all the time during the serve (weggie), ha ha…. check it out next time, he does that every time!!!!

  • s.d.

    Nadal is a great player and an even better human being, if that’s possible! The guy continually shows grace, pluck, good sportsmanship, and unflagging enthusaim for the sport. He is a terrifc ambassador for tennis, and his English is only getting better. Rafa actually has a very boyishly handsome face, if you can get past the hair. Not a fan of the hair, but that is part of his trademark look.

    Novak looks better with some facial hair, which he was sporting during their final. Djokovic is a tremendous player in his own right, but doesn’t have the moxie of Rafa! Great match nonetheless. The better player won!

    Pat #5,
    I don’t know where you come from but you obviously haven’t been to Spain. There are gorgeous guys there, by the way, big p*enis and the best lovers in the world, you need a holiday there and a good f*ck,too.
    Here we are talking about Nadal’s talent (which by the way is huge) and not about the size of his p*enis.

  • Natalie

    Lisa, don’t bother, number five sounds like she doesn’t remember the last time she had a s*hag, she spends too much time on her keyboard, I think the last time she saw a p-e-n-i-s was on her computer,watching internet p-o-r-n.

  • here!

    #2, sorry, but it’s well known that Rafa is at the moment number one in tennis. You’ve got to learn how to lose,too.

  • Charlie

    Hey, leave the guy alone, he is a great player, why are some people having a go at his look?, you don’t win tournaments by having a pretty face(that is not talent). He is brilliant!

  • lakers fan in boston

    congrats man!!!
    ur the best tennis player imo
    i hope u win at Wimbledon as well

  • chels

  • aldanat

    This guy has a certain lovelyness about him. He also happens to be a terrific tennis player. Am so glad he has finally made it to the top where he belongs. Ridiculous, dumb comment re Spaniards’ penis size. As if you’ve REALLY seen his or any other Spaniard’s appendage………………..

    It was a great match, of course as a Djokovic fan I’ve got to say I was rooting for him. Novak played a great second set too bad he couldn’t pull it throughout the third. Either way they’re both amazing players first and third in the world. Plus Nadal had the advantage with clay courts being his best type of court if I remember correctly.
    Great job Djokovic too, so proud of his accomplishments.

  • Mero

    Thanks Jared,
    I love Rafa, he’s an amazing champion and an amazing person.
    It doesn’t hurt that he Sexy as hell
    VAMOS, RAFA!!!!!!

  • Pat

    Thank you for all the attention guys!
    And of course I’ve been to Spain countless times…I have a lot of friends there and in many other European countries….so I back up my previous “small peen size” comment ;)
    I’m also entitled to my opinion on Rafael’s face…to me he is ugly…sorry if you don’t agree…but he is UGLY!
    He is an amazing tennis player though :P

  • raquel
