Nadal tames a rebel Pella and is already in the semifinals

Better the rest than the serve, had to overcome a 1-4 against the first and cost him to close the game in the third. Fognini and Coric, possible rivals.


Rafa Nadal threw defense and counterattack to overcome with much effort the game and the desire of Guido Pella, that probably made one of the best matches of his career and still was not able to overcome the king of the land in Monte Carlo, a square in which he has triumphed 11 times and where he will play the semifinals for 14th time. The Spaniard overcame a first set that was very uphill, first with a 4-1 against and then with 6-5 and serve for the Argentine, and imposed his rhythm in a second part also very worked: 7-6 ( 1) and 6-3 in two hours and 20 minutes. Wait rival: Coric or Fognini.

Live the Nadal-Pella live: (7-6, 6-2)
