Nadal had not lost in Monte Carlo since 2015 but there had been worrying signs for the Spaniard in his victory over Guido Pella on Friday, as he had to rally from 4-1 down before crucially breaking serve when trailing 6-5 in the first set.

However, this time he was unable to find a way to avoid dropping a set for the first time in Monte Carlo since his second-round clash with Kyle Edmund two years ago.

Fognini recorded a break in the opening game of the contest and while Nadal immediately hit back, the former forged into a 5-4 lead to earn a chance to serve out the set.

He seized the opportunity, albeit only after a fortunate flick off the net put him 40-30 up, as a confident volley plunged Nadal into unfamiliar territory.
