Good picture. Roger's pants are getting shorter and tighter... Rafa's, longer and looser. Rafa's got sleeves, next thing you know Roger will be sleeveless.

I really like the colors on Rafa, but I hope that's not his Open outfit.

Nadal beats Federer in Monte Carlo final

Rafael Nadal holds the Monte Carlo Masters Trophy after beating Roger Federer.

Rafael Nadal has become the first player in the Open era to win four consecutive Monte Carlo Masters titles, downing world number one Roger Federer 7-5, 7-5 in the final for the third year in a row.

The second-seeded Spaniard has won his last 22 matches in the principality and has already shown he is the hot favourite to win next month's French Open for the fourth year in succession.

Before him, only New Zealand's Anthony Wilding had won four straight titles in Monte Carlo, back in 1914.

Nadal became the first player since American Jim Courier in 1991 in Indian Wells to win the singles and doubles titles at a Masters Series event when, with compatriot Tommy Robredo, he beat Mark Knowles and Mahesh Bhupathi 6-3, 6-3 in the doubles final.

The 21-year-old Nadal improved his personal record against Federer to 9-6 (7-1 on clay) and is undefeated on the Monte Carlo clay since a third-round loss to Argentine Guillermo Coria in 2003.

"It's unthinkable, winning here for the fourth year in a row," Nadal said.

Federer, who lost his Australian Open crown in January and had to wait until last weekend to claim his first title of the year in Estoril, said: "He's a tough player on clay. Maybe my attacking game did not work so well.

"I'm still close (to beating him). It's not getting much easier but I am right there and it's a good thing."

Federer, who was on the brink of defeat against Spanish qualifier Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo in the first round, said he felt relieved to be back.

"I am coming back strong and am happy the way things are now," said the Swiss, who had mononucleosis earlier this year.

"A few weeks ago I was still in a bit of doubt."
