Rafael Nadal Now Leads All Players With 31 Masters Titles [Chart]

ATP Monte Carlo Bryan Brothers claim their 38th career Masters title in straight sets

Rafael Nadal says he is looking to carry the momentum from his 11th Monte Carlo Masters title into the rest of the clay-court season.

The 16-time Grand Slam Champion saw off Nishikori 6-3, 6-2 to become the first man to win a tournament 11 times in the Open era with his 76th ATP Tour triumph.

After retiring with a hip injury during his Australian Open quarter-final against Marin Cilic, Nadal withdrew from the Mexican Open, Indian Wells Masters and Miami Open due to the problem.

"So I'm just enjoying every day and trying to play with the best attitude possible, to keep being happy playing tennis".

The ten-time French Open victor went down an early break to Nishikori in the final and it started to look like Nishikori would pose the most serious test for Nadal, but the Spaniard broke back immediately and won five of the next six games to win the set.

Nadal also retained the world No1, ranking ahead of rival Roger Federer. Have the victory in a Masters 1000, especially in Monte-Carlo, that for me is, yeah, one of the most important ones in terms of personal feeling and in terms of history of our sport.

"My legs were very heavy today, playing three sets three days in a row, playing with tough players".

With the title, the Spanish king of Clay, who is also targeting an 11th Roland Garros trophy this year, made his run of consecutive sets won on clay to 36 in an hour and 33 minutes.

Japan's Nishikori, the world No 36, was a game opponent throughout a gruelling first set.

"Today is a day to enjoy this because winning a tournament like this one doesn't happen every day".

"It's always hard to be back from injury and I'm happy to see you again playing well". I think little pains, it´s not just my wrist.
