Other than the Stanley/Fed match only three matches were played to their conclusion today in rain soaked Monte Carlo. Nole and Montanes played through the rain (though I think they were on a covered court) with Nole dishing out a bagel on his way to a win. Fer told Steve Tignor to suck it and thoroughly trashed Daveed, 2 and 1. It's official, Daveed. I refuse to every buy your stock ever again. I mean, I was rooting for Fer but come on, dude, you can't give us hope like that and then crash out 2 and 1. Go have a burger and some cigs and think about what you've done.
Meanwhile, Andreas Beck is quietly having one heck of a tourney. He beat Pico in three.
 N Djokovic (SRB) d A Montanes (ESP) 61 67(4) 60
 F Verdasco (ESP) d  D Ferrer (ESP) 62 61
[Q] A Beck (GER) d J Monaco (ARG) 36 62 75
Here are the matches that have to be played/finished tomorrow:
 R Nadal (ESP) vs [Q] N Lapentti (ECU) - to finish 01
 A Murray (GBR) vs [Q] F Fognini (ITA) - to finish 76(11) 10
 D Nalbandian (ARG) vs  N Davydenko (RUS)
S Bolelli (ITA) vs [WC] I Ljubicic (CRO)
This really sucks for Rafa and, potentially, Muzz. They're going to have to play two matches in one day.
