Road to Roland Garros: It's All-Spanish Final in Monte Carlo

In this edition of Court Report Daily Digital Hit, Rafael Nadal advanced to the final of the Monte Carlo Masters on Sunday with a semifinal win over David Goffin. The Belgian jumped to an early lead in the opening set but in the sixth game of the opening set, he was serving up a break 3-2 and one point away from 4-2 when chair umpire Cedric Mourier overruled the linesman’s call on Nadal’s forehand shot that went wide, which in turn rattled Goffin. Video replay showed Nadal's shot was out, but Goffin couldn't challenge the call because clay court tournaments don't use the now popular Hawk-Eye since the mark is easy to see on clay.

Nadal will face compatriot Ramos-Vinolas, who beat Lucas Pouille 6-3, 5-7, 6-1 to reach his first Masters 1000 final.
