Tipping tennis is hard work but I think sometimes you have to look at a draw realistically and work out who matches up the best against certain opponents.
As soon as Novak got beaten early in Monte Carlo it was almost a race to the finish line but only the fittest and smartest was going to get there. Rafa has been waiting to get his hands on the Monte Carlo trophy since he last won it in 2012 against Novak in the final.
Andy doesn't hit with enough spin on the clay and Stan's form at present is up and down hence my prediction last Friday that Rafa would take the title even before their match.
Rafa loves Monte Carlo, I loved Monte Carlo in 1991, EVERYONE LOVES MONTE CARLO, the place where Walt Disney movies have been made since I was kid and even well before that.
Rafa just loves it a little bit more because quite frankly he 'owns' Monte Carlo.......
