The King of Clay was deposed in the 2013 Monte Carlo Masters final when Novak Djokovic defeated the eight-time defending champion Rafael Nadal 6-2, 7-6(1).

Nadal saw his incredible 46-match winning streak broken as Djokovic now holds every ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title except for Cincinnati.

Djokovic dominated the first set but found himself under pressure at the start of the second as they proceeded to a tie-break. The tie-break turned out to be a one-sided affair as Nadal watched his title slip away.

 “It's a very joyful moment for me,” said Djokovic. “I wanted that trophy badly all my life, especially in the last six, seven years that I've been spending my time and living here between the tournaments in Monaco. This is a great confidence boost before the rest of the clay-court season.” 

After suffering his first loss at the Monte Carlo Country Club since 2003, Nadal said after the match:

 “Today, he was better than me. He's a fantastic player. If you are not at 100 per cent, [it] is very difficult to win against these kinds of players. His game is very complete. To win, I have to play my best and I have to bring him to the limit.” 

The Monte-Carlo Masters will be held on 12-20 April 2014
