Rafael Nadal won his 7th title at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters today defeating David Ferrer 6-4, 7-5. It's an amazing feat, (they don't call him the "King of Clay" for nothing) and since it's hard for me to put it in words, I'm going to give you some statistics from Greg Sharko the "stat guru" of the ATP:
Here's my simple stat: At the beginning of the clay court season, Rafa had 5000 points to defend due to his titles last year at Monte Carlo, Rome, Madrid, and Roland Garros, and after winning Monte Carlo he has 4000 left to go. I'm a genious, right?
