Rafael Nadal eases to victory in Monte Carlo Masters

But that isn't all that was impressive about Nadal's mostly straightforward 6-1, 6-3 victory against compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas on Sunday.

Spain's 30-year-old king of clay claimed his 50th trophy on his favourite surface, his 70th overall and his first title in nearly a year as he beat compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-1, 6-3 with a clinical winning effort which took just 76 minutes.

Nadal was so close to winning a 15th Grand Slam title in Australia earlier this year, after eight major appearances without advancing past the quarterfinals. "I played well here, which helps me a lot to start the clay-court season with confidence", said Nadal.

The Spanish tennis star become the first player in the Open Era to have won 10 titles of the same tournament.

"To win 10 times at such an important event like Monte Carlo is something hard to describe my feelings", Nadal said.

"I feel lucky to keep playing tennis [and] being healthy all those years, in order to compete in one of the most handsome events of the year", Nadal, who won his first title since last April, said. Next week, I am playing another very important event for me at home and I'm excited about that. "Today I won a very important title for me". Nadal, however, made it clear that his next objective is not the French Open, but the upcoming ATP 500 event in Barcelona which is followed Masters Series events in Madrid and Rome before they arrive at Roland Garros on 22 May.

Ramos-Vinolas had put together the best week of his career in posting back-to-back victory over World No. 1 Andy Murray, No. 8-ranked Marin Cilic and No. 17-ranked Lucas Pouille.

"I'm very happy to win another one".

"He was a little bit better in everything".

The only final the 30-year-old Nadal has lost at Monte Carlo was to Novak Djokovic in 2013. "When he's a little bit better in everything, the difference is what we saw", Ramos-Vinolas said.

"He has a little bit more power than me in the game".

"I really want it, too", Nadal said after Sunday's game, a smile breaking across his face". "Then I going to keep playing at home in Madrid".
