Nadal into Monte Carlo final

9:48 am on 18 April 2010

Rafael Nadal left no doubt that he would be the overwhelming favourite at next month's French Open after crushing fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 6-2 6-3 in the Monte Carlo Masters semi-finals.

Nadal, gunning for a record sixth consecutive title in the glitzy principality, will face compatriot Fernando Verdasco or world number two Novak Djokovic of Serbia in Monday's final.
