MONACO (AP) As the first men's tennis player in the Open era to win the same title 10 times, Rafael Nadal showed Sunday he's likely the best ever on clay after easily beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-1, 6-3 in an all-Spanish final at the Monte Carlo Masters.

It was Nadal's 50th career title on his favored surface, moving him one clear of Argentine Guillermo Vilas. The next big challenge for Nadal will be winning a 10th French Open title. The last of his 14 Grand Slams was three years ago in Roland Garros.

"I want," Nadal said after Sunday's game, a smile breaking across his face. "I really want it too."
