Nadal rallies to beat Murray and reach Monte Carlo final

Rafael Nadal beat Andy Murray 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to play for his ninth Monte Carlo Masters title.

If Nadal beats Gael Monfils in the final on Sunday, he will earn a record-equaling 28th Masters title, tied with Novak Djokovic.

"It's been a very important week for me," Nadal said. "I increased the speed of the ball and played a little bit more inside the court, because Andy had control of the point too many times in the first set."

Monfils eased past Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 6-3 in all-French semifinal, breaking Tsonga's serve six times in less than half the time Nadal spent turning the table on Murray.
