Rafael Nadal beats Andy Murray, reaches 100th career final

World number five Rafael Nadal reached his 100th career final, beating Andy Murray 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 this afternoon in the semifinals of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Master.

Murray broke twice to take the opening set 6-2, but wilted under Rafa’s power and accuracy to lose the next two 6-4, 6-2.

Our champ now awaits the winner of the second semifinal between French players Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.


  1. Being a Brit I always wanted to like Murray. I liked his ‘dry’ humour. But all I see on court and in the press are his whines and moans and cheap disparaging remarks. His latest ‘I suppose No5 is still pretty good’. What an a*$%hole. No.5 just beat you Again! and on far from his best form.

  2. Estoy mas que felizzzzzz!!

  3. Great job don Rada I now you can do it VAMSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS?to the finals.love your fans for ever.🎾🎾🎾🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️🎾🎾🎾🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️

  4. Wow, congratulations, Rafa on reaching your 100th career final. That is an
    amazing accomplishment. I saw the match today and loved your bold play to
    take sets 2 and 3 from Andy. Andy was on fire in the 1st set but you certainly
    put out the flames after that. You never took your foot off the gas. I love how
    your never take any opponent for granted. You just stay in every moment, every point, maintaining your composure. Another wonderful performance.

    Best wishes in the final against Gael, another fascinating player. That will definitely
    be a mouth-watering and athletic display and exchange of great shot-making from both
    Rafa and Gael!

  5. I have enjoyed reading the many comments. I watched mostly on TennisTV and then the Tennis Channel. I thought they were both fairly balanced. TC can sometimes be overly negative, in my view, depending on who the commies are. I hope that Rafa fans will be realistic and take it match by match. Montfils is playing some of the best tennis I have seen from him. Even though Rafa is very popular in MC, I would have to think that Gael will have huge support. I am hoping for the best.

  6. April 16th 2016….Montreal…..Bravo Rafa! Excellent to see you back on the right side of the net, so to speak! Monte Carlo seems to agree with you – keep up the good work!

  7. Slimy sarcastic biased commentary? Never!! They are professionals of course:) It must be killing them that Rafa is still swatting aside the great British hopes just as they thought they got rid of him. So what if he takes longer than others between points – he always has. The strength of a player is to adapt to each player’s game like Rafa has to. Is it a coincidence or the certainty of having a French player in the final that contributed to the French umpire throwing him of his game?

    • Andy too, took his time serving and often went above the allowed time….. An ant made into an elephant over nothing……it was no big deal it was truly a question of seconds for both players….. Somehow the two poor commentators kept their bias obvious and ugly. So tiring and so disappointing to see Fleming join the crowd of European tennis bias. Makes zero sense!!!! Furthermore, it was trackless of them to have Andy’s brother comment on the game minutes before it began….. foolishly, all three of them were bias in predicting that Andy will win….. Made no sense but they seem to be pleased with themselves. As we beautifully witness, Rafa prevailed beautifully , played stronger, played better, had better sportsmanship and was much more engaging and passionate. Somehow the commentators were stuck in their little small minded world of bias and kept making a huge deal over nothing with respect to the timing between serves. They lacked gentlemen manners, and it came across absolutely bonkers to see such unprofessional behaviors and bias opinion in regard to top players….. VAMOS DEAR RAFA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) : ) : ) : )

      Have a fabulous time today DEAR RAFA ….. we love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )

  8. Andy is a bad loser and yet Rafa loves Andy. The British commentators were so biased. it was so evident in Wawrinke/Nadal match. I was waiting for Nadal to be interviewed on court and who did they interview but Murray. I could have spat rust. Good luck Rafa tomorrow against Monfils.

    • Nadal loves everybody – he is one of life’s innocence – people that are so pure they tend not to see bad in others – which is why I love him.

  9. Fabulous win-play on-keep the momentum going🏆👑🏆👑🏆👑🏆👑🏆👑🏆👑
