Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal

WE MEET AGAIN

It's been awhile since Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have met. Take a look back at their memorable matches.

Nadal won his 46 previous matches at Monte Carlo — beating Djokovic in last year's final — and his last defeat here was against Guillermo Coria 10 years ago. Nadal missed the 2004 tournament through injury before winning his first Monte Carlo title the following year.

Nadal then beat Roger Federer in the next three finals.

Djokovic faced Nadal for the 16th time in a championship decider, and they are now 8-8 in finals. Nadal had won the previous three, including the French Open final last year.
