 Nadal overcame Gasquet from

Tournaments (English)Spain's Rafael Nadal stormed back to beat French sensation Richard Gasquet on Saturday and set up a Monte Carlo Masters final against defending champion Guillermo Coria.

Eleventh seed Nadal, the most consistent player on clay this year, ended Gasquet's amazing run with a 6-7 6-4 6-3 victory in an absorbing battle between the two 18-year-olds.

Earlier on a cool and blustery day at the Country Club Argentine Coria came through a scrappy contest against twice former winner Juan Carlos Ferrero, winning 6-2 7-5.

Nadal, two weeks older than Gasquet, is the first teenager to reach the Monte Carlo final since Andrei Medvedev in 1994 but he needed to be at his tenacious best to beat the French qualifier who ended Roger Federer's 25-match winning streak the previous day.

To a dramatic backdrop of waves crashing against the Riviera coast, the two young guns pounded eachother for nearly three hours of enthralling claycourt tennis. While the earlier semi-final between the past champions had done little to warm the shivering fans, Nadal and Gasquet had them on the edge of their seats.

As against Federer, Gasquet used his superb backhand to devastating effect, coming back from 5-3 down in the opening set to snatch it on a tiebreak.

Nadal, who has already won two claycourt tournaments this year, was rocked when he lost serve immediately in the second set, but he broke back twice to take the match into a decider.

Gasquet was visibly tiring after his exploits against Federer and he twice needed treatment from the trainer, the second time for leg cramps.

The stocky Frenchman continued to play the more aggressive tennis, but he failed to take his opportunities when they came along against the more experienced big match player.

Gasquet squandered four break points at 2-2 and another one at 3-3 and there was no way back when Nadal broke in the eighth game before clinching victory on his second match point when Gasquet sent a backhand into the net.
