Rafael Nadal won an unprecedented eighth straight title at the Monte Carlo Masters on Sunday, defeating Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-1. The victory also marked the end of a seven-match losing streak in finals to the Serb world number one, whose last victory over Nadal came in a six-hour Australian Open final. Nadal's victory was his 42nd in a row at the Mediterranean venue and marks his 47th career trophy and 20th in a Masters 1000 tournament, the first to achieve that honour. The win was also his first ATP trophy since winning Roland Garros last June. "I've always felt unbelievable here," said an emotional Nadal. "It's unbelievable to win this historic tournament eight times. I always feel great when I come here. "I had lost to Novak seven times, so losing eight would not have been much different. But to win this one makes a big difference.
