Novak Djokovic brushes aside David Nalbandian in Monte Carlo Masters

Top seed Novak Djokovic eased past out-of-sorts David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 to reach the Monte Carlo Masters tennis semi-finals and set up a possible re-run of last year’s final against Rafael Nadal.

Nadal, who has won the Monte Carlo title every year since 2005, beat compatriot Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-4, 6-2 for his 30th consecutive win in the tournament. He now faces another Spaniard, David Ferrer, a 7-5, 7-6 winner over Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber.
