...
After three deuces and THREE championship points, Rafael Nadal wins the Monte Carlo Masters 2017.
...
But Nadal tips it ever so gently down the tramlines to finish off his 40-30 fightback. HOLD for 5-3 and now Nadal is a break - or a service game - away from a win! 
...
Ramos Vinolas almost had a foot back in the door there on the VERGE of a break back leading 30-0. 


...
 Nadal* 6-1, 4-3 Ramos Vinolas
...
Ramos Vinolas isn't done yet. He has his own love game - his first of the match. He's still down a break at 3-4, but the #15 seed won't go down without a fight! 
...
Rafael Nadal 6-1, 4 -2 *Albert Ramos Vinolas
...
Game Nadal, who holds to love. Dominant and how. 
...
Nadal comes into the net ostensibly to put some psychological pressure on Ramos and it works. He's staring down a love hold at 40-0 right now.
...
Rafael Nadal* 6-1, 3-2 Albert Ramos Vinolas
...
And there's the first break of the second set! Rafael Nadal wins on his second break point to take a 3-2 lead in the second set. Is this where it all goes downhill for ARV, or can he fight back? 
...
Rafael Nadal* 6-1, 1 - 2 Albert Ramos Vinolas
...
After quite the back-and-forth, it's game Ramos on serve, 2-1.
...
He's looking stronger on every single point now, is Ramos, and not as meek to Nadal's brutal attack. 
...
Service hold from Nadal to take scores to 1-1! Defense has been much better from ARV so far this set, much better than set 1...but then again, he held then to start, too..
...
A love hold from Ramos to start off set 2. Not bad, not bad at all! 
...
First set to Rafael Nadal, 6-1.
...
Hoo boy. Nadal wants to wrap this up, and fast! The Spanish ace breezes through that first set, breaking, breaking and it's an, er, broken Albert Ramos who will want to fight back in Set 2. It's been done before.. but with Beast Mode Nadal on, our money's on La Decima. 
...
Albert Ramos Vinolas can't catch a break....literally! He hasn't managed to hold a game either since that first service game, and he's flubbed it royally. Nadal now a game away from the first set. This is looking like quite the straightforward battle...
...
Lightning fast service game from Rafa there to lead 2-1. 
...
PSA - Rafa is yet to win a final this year. Could this be his first or is ARV going to continue that trend? 
...
Rafael Nadal* 1 - 1 Albert Ramos Vinolas
...
Game Albert Ramos Vinolas, on serve! Scores are level at 1-1
...
DEUCE! This is already looking like a proper fight or what! 
...
Looking like Rafa's going to break... at 40-0.

Spoke to soon? Ramos is fighting back and how!
