Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-3 to reach the final of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Monte-Carlo.
Djokovic will be aiming to become the first player to win the opening three Masters 1000 events of the season tomorrow when he faces Tomas Berdych in the final.
"I did have a slower start than he did in the match," admitted Djokovic. "He started very aggressive, playing good, serving well, having a break point for a double break. I played a good point there. I won a very important game not to allow him to have the advantage of 3-0.
"I started to get into the rhythm, started to tactically play the way I intended from the beginning. It was a fight. I think the 3-all game in both sets, they were the decisive moments in the match. I managed to win those in both sets.
