Fognini vs Lajovic in Monte Carlo final

Fabio Fognini pulled off a stunner on Saturday, ousting 11-time champ and No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-2 in the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters at Monaco.

The 13th-seeded Italian reached the first Masters 1000 level final of his career with the victory.

Nadal hadn't lost in 18 matches in the event.

"I probably played one of the worst matches on clay in 14 years," said Nadal. "When that happens, you have to lose. And today I deserved to lose because I played against a player that was better than me today."
