Dominant Nadal outclasses Zverev in Monte Carlo
Thursday 20 April 2017 17:17
The defending champion, looking to become the first player to win three tournaments on 10 occasions, was sloppy in a three-set win over Kyle Edmund on Wednesday. Zverev will be disappointed with his showing and gifted his opponent too many cheap points, but Nadal's speed and precision was too good for the world number 20. Nadal was in the ascendancy from the off, typically dominating from the baseline with his trademark stinging forehands.
