Monte Carlo Final Round-Up
Unfortunately Fernando lost 6-0, 6-1 to Rafa in the Monte Carlo final. The score doesn’t reflect how close at some times the match was (check out the amazing point below!) but Rafa was just too good from the first point.
Despite the loss, Fernando can take away some positives from this week. Not only did he reach his first ever masters semifinal, but he reached his first Masters final, and will re-enter the top ten at #9 this week. So despite a disappointing finish, his success in Monte Carlo will give him some confidence for the rest of the clay season. Barcelona next, where he will face either Richard Gasquet or Igor Andreev.
Here’s his post match presser:
