Nadal targets further improvement in Barcelona

Rafael Nadal of Spain, seen during his Monte-Carlo ATP Masters Series semi-final match against Novak Djokovic of Serbia, in Monaco, on April 18, 2015Rafael Nadal has a return to winning ways on clay in his sights as he targets a ninth title at the Barcelona Open this week. The Spaniard was beaten in straight sets by world number one Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters on Saturday, but insisted he was pleased by his progress after a poor start to the year after a long injury layoff in the second half of last season. Nadal is only seeded second despite leapfrogging top seed and defending champion Kei Nishikori to move back to fourth in the world with his run in Monte Carlo. The 28-year-old was beaten for just the second time in his career in Barcelona last season as a shock defeat to compatriot Nicolas Almagro ended a 41-match winning streak stretching back to 2003.
