Rafael Nadal Basel International

Speaking during the aftermath of the contest, Nadal admitted that he actually felt sorry for his Austrian counterpart, although he was highly pleased with his own performance.

This has been and continues to be a nightmarish draw for Thiem, but he has successfully navigated it thus far with comebacks from a set down in each of his first two outings.

In the semi-final on Saturday, he will be up against world No.5, Grigor Dimitrov who beat David Goffin 6-4 7-6 in the first quarter-final. What about the impact of high speeds on the body day after day, or the monotony of it all?

In 1970, Barcelona became a part of the ATP calendar (best of 5 finals until 2006) and Manuel Santana was the first winner in the Open era.

Nishikori, who missed a large part of last season with a wrist injury, started the season in the Challenger Tour events before reaching the second round at Miami. "Hopefully in my next match I can do better in those moments".

The dominant Nadal will earn an 11th championship in Monte Carlo in 14 years, if he wins Sunday's final.

In these, Zverev twice nicked the final set - once on a tiebreak - and also needed a tiebreak victory in his straight sets triumph in Montpellier, last February. The world No. 1 leaned on his service game in the second set and struts into the semis, with Austrian Thiem glad for a couple of consolatory games in the end.

Nadal has to win the Monte Carlo Masters in order to avoid losing his top ranking to long-time rival Roger Federer.

Croatia's Cilic will take on Kei Nishikori in the quarterfinals, after the Japanese continued his return to form by beating Italian qualifier Andreas Seppi 6-0, 2-6, 6-3. Cornering on a sports bike or revving up sand dunes requires the utmost physical endurance, and racers invest heavily in it. It helps stave off fatigue and maintain alertness and reaction time.

A brilliant sliced backhand saw Nadal break Dimitrov at the first time of asking but the Bulgarian broke back in the fifth game of the opening set.

"He asked me about things". Then, of course, he has his group and he will decide. "Being honest, I have to recognize that". If you don't believe the head-to-head has any influence, then the price on Goffin could be worth taking. But then one day trying things, trying treatments, one day things are going better, no?

The 16-time Grand Slam champion wrapped up the set with a whipped forehand onto the line.
