1. Clay King. Rafael Nadal won his first title since since the Japan Open last October, taking the Monte Carlo Masters Series event. Yes, it's clay-court season, which means that as a matter of ritual, Nadal knocks off any rust from his game, like granules of clay on his shoes, and begins to dominate. He's won the Monte Carlo title for seven straight years. Next it's on to Rome, which he's won five of the last six years. Then Madrid, where he's the defending champ. And finally, Paris, which he's won five times since 2005. Players looking for some consolation will note that Nadal was hardly at his best last week. He dropped a set to Andy Murray and was pushed in the final by David Ferrer. Of course, that Nadal can still win even playing his "B-level game" could just as easily kill confidence.
