Rafa Nadal wasted little time winning his first match of the European clay court season, as he dispatched British No 2 Aljaz Bedene in 80 minutes at the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters. 

The nine-time French Open winner won 6-3 6-3 against the world No 60 who, at least, managed to break the Spaniard's serve once in each set.

However, the eight-time Monte Carlo champion was always in charge as he seeks to claim his first ATP Tour title in more than eight months.

He won four of the opening five games of the match, before breaking serve three times in the second set.
