Rafael Nadal romped to a record-extending 11th Monte Carlo Masters title by brushing aside an outclassed Kei Nishikori in Sunday's final to retain the world No. 1 ranking.The Spaniard will next set his sights on an 11th Barcelona Open victory next week and it is hard to see anyone preventing him from extending his record number of 10 French Open titles at Roland Garros at the end of the clay court season.He was pushed by Japan's Nishikori early on and fell a break down, but roared back against an opponent who already appeared beaten midway through the first set.Nadal got on the board with a strong service hold before quickly putting Nishikori under pressure as a flicked passing shot brought up break point.Nishikori forced a break point in the seventh game but fired long with the court wide open as Nadal kept his nose in front.
