Rafael Nadal has won an astonishing 8 titles in Monte Carlo and most people expect him to win his 9th this year. Grigor Dimitrov (reportedly Maria Sharapova's boyfriend) had other ideas and
showed why he is widely believed to be an important player in the (near) future by winning a set from the King of Clay in a 6-2 2-6 6-4 loss. Nadal will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who dismissed Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6 6-3 6-4. Murray's early round loss to Wawrinka means that his more well-known compatriot Roger Federer will regain the World #2 spot on Monday.
Tsonga and Nadal will face off on clay for only the 2nd time despite having faced each other ten times before, with the Spaniard leading 7-3. I believe Tsonga will be able to win a set, but it's very doubtful that he can win the match. Even though Djokovic is playing with an ankle that was recently badly twisted, he will still probably have no problem defeating Fognini again and setting up a reprise of last year's final.
MadProfessah's prediction: Nadal-Djokovic final.
