MONTE CARLO — Rafael Nadal made history with a  一0th Monte Carlo title on Sunday but the Spanish star refused to entertain thoughts of adding a  一0th French Open to his  一 四-title Grand Slam collection.

Spain’s  三0-year-old king of clay claimed his  五0th trophy on his favourite surface, his  七0th overall and his first title in almost a year as he beat compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas  六- 一,  六- 三 with a clinical winning effort which took just  七 六 minutes.

Nadal’s next target will be his home event in Barcelona, where he owns nine titles.

He has the same number at Roland Garros and could crack the  一0 barrier in Paris under the right circumstances but he is keeping his goals in perspective and not looking too far ahead.

"The next step is not Roland Garros, the next step is Barcelona,"大众said Nadal.

"I never take Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, Madrid like a preparation for any other tournament. These tournaments are so important. That’s the real thing.

"Then Roland Garros arrives later. It is another important event for me."

"Next week, I am playing another very important event for me at home and I’m excited about that. Then I going to keep playing at home in Madrid."

Nadal won eight Monte Carlo titles in a row from  二00 五 to  二0 一 二 but then lost to Novak Djokovic in the  二0 一 三 final.

His  五0 clay titles breaks the record he shared with Guillermo Vilas since April last year when he lifted his ninth trophy in Barcelona.

"This is really unbelievable,公众added Nadal. "To win  一0 times in such an important event like Monte Carlo is something difficult to describe. Every year it’s been a different feeling.

"At the same time it is always a unique moment every time I have this trophy with me. I feel lucky to keep playing tennis, being healthy all those years, to compete in one of the most beautiful events of the year, without a doubt.

Ramos-Vinolas, who had upset number one Andy Murray and Marin Cilic in the best run of his career, knew he was outclassed on Sunday.

"He was a little bit better in everything. When he’s a little bit better in everything, the difference after, it’s what we saw in the match,"大众said the  二 九-year-old.

"It’s not easy to play a final, to play against Rafa Nadal, to play with no sun today.

"He has a little bit more power than me in the game. Also I think the cloud today didn’t help me."大众— AFP
