We had two good match-ups in Saturday’s semifinals at the Monte Carlo Masters: Novak Djokovic vs. Stan Wawrinka and Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray. I was glad that Stan took a set off of Novak, but was hoping the “second Swiss” could ride his victory over Roger all the way to the finals. Nadal beat Murray in straight sets, though Murray fans are excited that the second set went to a tiebreak.
So it’s Djokovic vs. Nadal in Sunday’s final – in what could be a preview of the Roland Garros final, if both guys keep it up and the draw works out. (I should say if Novak keeps it up – there’s little “if” when it comes to Nadal at the French Open.)
Here are some highlights from Saturday’s play:
Nadal vs. Djokovic will be broadcast live on Sunday at 8:00 am, EST, on Tennis Channel.
The Bryan brothers take on Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic in the doubles final, which will be shown on Sunday at 4:00pm, EST, on Tennis Channel (tape).
