Nadal in Monte Carlo Masters semi-finals

The clay-court season is in full swing in Monte Carlo.

"I have been in that situation", Nadal added.

Spain's Rafael Nadal plays a backhand return to Austria's Dominic Thiem during their singles tennis match at the Monte- Carlo ATP Masters Series tournament in Monaco on Saturday.

Nadal will next face Grigor Dimitrov, who may prefer not to think too much about their head-to-head rivalry: 10-1 to Nadal.

Nadal wins his 76th title of his career. Nishikori beat No. 4-ranked Alexander Zverev 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

But the Spaniard appears to have erased any doubts over his form at this week's Monte Carlo Masters.

The 31-year-old said: "It has been a great result for me, but it isn't a normal result".

President Donald Trump's appointee to the court, Neil Gorsuch, sided with four liberal justices in the case. Justice Elena Kagan wrote that the 20015 decision "tells us how to resolve this case".

The 16-time Grand Slam champion Nadal had it easy in the beginning when he won the first three games.

And, speaking ahead of his match against Dimitrov, Nadal revealed he had been talking to Murray about his injury woes. I will probably write down things I could have done better. "I hate losing", Dimitrov said.

He remains on course for a record-extending 11th Monte Carlo title and record 31st Masters.

Novak Djokovic has confirmed he will play at the Barcelona Open next week.

The second finalist will be confirmed later in the day, when third seed Alexander Zverev takes on an improving Kei Nishikori.

Nishikori, who is still getting over a right wrist injury, has just two wins over Nadal in 11 meetings. "Little bit sore still".

The 31-year-old brought up match point with a searing forehand victor, and completed a 68-minute demolition as Thiem fired a backhand into the net. The German player looked jaded, having finished a long and grueling quarterfinal at 9 p.m. on Friday. Nadal has won 11 straight matches on clay court. Djokovic chose to enter the tournament following his the third round Monte Carlo exit at the hands of Dominic Thiem.
