We have finally headed into the weekend at the Monte Carlo Masters and it is no surprise that a certain Rafael Nadal is once again among the contenders. The Spaniard is seeking a record-extended 12th title at this picturesque Mediterranean coastal event, one which he has practically made his second home.

After the ouster of World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals on Friday, Nadal should be in the driver's seat for yet another triumph in the first of the clay Masters events this season, but his path not without danger.

Nadal faces Fabio Fognini in his quest for a final berth and needs to be at his imperious best right from the first point for the Italian knows a thing or two about dismantling the 17-time Grand Slam champion on the European terre battue.

Out of Fognini's three wins over Nadal in their 14 meetings, two were earned on the red dirt, one of which famously came at Barcelona in 2015. Fognini's pace and smooth backhands do pose a threat to Nadal and that necessitates the Spaniard to be on his guard throughout the match.

Having said that, Rafa was indeed put to a stern test by Guido Pella in their last-eight clash where he had to come back from a couple of breaks down to get a 7-6(1), 6-3 win. That hard-fought first set might have come just at the right time for Nadal and will stand him in good stead for today's vital clash.
