MONACO---Roger Federer and Stan
Wawrinka both exited the Monte Carlo
Masters in the third round yesterday, and
Rafael Nadal continued his road to recovery
by overcoming John Isner in three sets.
Federer, who played his first tournament
in nearly four weeks, made too many mistakes
in a 6-4, 7-6 (5) loss to Gael Monfils after
Wawrinka---the defending champion---was
routed 6-1, 6-2 by Grigor Dimitrov.
"It s the very beginning of the clay-court
season. It s going to take me some time to
feel 100 per cent comfortable," the second-
ranked Federer said. "Not many guys are
perfect this week."
Nadal might not be at his best yet, but
his fighting spirit remains intact. The eight-
time Monte Carlo champion, who arrived
with a big question mark surrounding his
form, came out on top of a tense match with
the big-serving Isner to reach the quarterfinals
with a 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-3 win.
Top-ranked Novak Djokovic enjoyed
another stroll and extended his winning streak
to 14 matches, defeating Andreas Haider-
Maurer 6-4, 6-0 to set-up a quarterfinal
match against Marin Cilic.
Federer has changed his schedule this sea-
son to allow more time for training and was
not expecting to peak early on clay. He will
now return to Switzerland to do some more
practice before tournaments in Istanbul and
At 33, Federer s main ambition is to add
more major titles to his glittering resume.
His quest for a second French Open begins
on May 24 and he believes he has enough
time to make the proper adjustments.
After they traded early breaks, Monfils
took advantage of Federer s consecutive fore-
hand errors to break in the ninth game and
he served out the set on his first occasion.
Federer s charges to the net in a tight sec-
ond set were loudly cheered by the fans but
his lack of consistency from the baseline
proved decisive. He failed to build on a 5-
3 lead in the tiebreaker, losing the final four
It was Monfils s second consecutive win
on clay over the 17-time Grand Slam cham-
pion after he beat him in straight sets during
last year s Davis Cup final, and Federer s ear-
liest loss in Monte Carlo since 2009.
Against Isner, Nadal showed the grit and
patience that have defined his 10-year reign
on clay. The nine-time French Open cham-
pion waited until the middle of the third set
to secure a break after withstanding an ava-
lanche of aces and groundstrokes delivered
by the 15th-seeded American.
Nadal, who dropped to fifth in the rankings
after his poor start to the season, fended off
two set points in the tiebreaker but was bro-
ken in the ninth game of the second set when
he went long with a forehand.
The turning point came in the fourth game
of the decider, when Nadal earned two break
points with a passing shot. He converted the
first one with a thundering forehand winner
and punched the air in his trademark cel-
Nadal next faces clay specialist David Ferrer,
who beat him at this stage of the tournament
The fifth-seeded Ferrer needed 2 ½ hours
to oust Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-1.
Earlier, Dimitrov capitalised on Wawrinka s
awful display to advance, as the seventh-
seeded Swiss got off a sluggish start and
never found the right balance.
Widely regarded as a future star of the
game, the 23-year-old Dimitrov broke for 3-
1 in the second set after the former Australian
Open champion shanked three forehands.
He set up a meeting with Monfils when
Wawrinka sailed yet another forehand out
of court to drop his serve.
LOS ANGELES---Anthony Davis had 31 points
and 13 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans
earned their first playoff berth since 2011 with
a 108-103 victory over the San Antonio Spurs
Davis, who ll make his playoff debut against
Golden State, came through in the waning minutes
with two jumpers, two blocks and two rebounds
to prevent the Spurs from pulling off a 23-point
Tyreke Evans had 19 points and 11 assists, and
Eric Gordon added 14 points for New Orleans,
which had to win to make the postseason because
Oklahoma City also won in Minnesota. The teams
finished with identical records, but the Pelicans
held the tiebreaker on head-to-head results.
Jrue Holiday added 11 points, capped by game-
sealing free throws with 9.5 seconds left.
Tony Parker had 23 points and Borris Diaw 20
for San Antonio, which needed to win to secure
the second seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
The loss ended the Spurs 11-game winning streak.
Oklahoma City s Russell Westbrook scored 37
points in the Thunder s 138-113 victory over Min-
nesota that was rendered moot by New Orleans
playoff-clinching win over San Antonio.
The Thunder needed to a win in the regular-
season finale and a loss from the Pelicans to make
the playoffs. Westbrook locked up his first scoring
title to hold up his end of the bargain but the Pel-
icans beat the Spurs. That means the Thunder
will miss the playoffs for the first time since West-
brook s rookie season in 2008-09.
The Nets clinched the final Eastern Conference
spot, beating the Orlando Magic 101-88 and getting
help when Memphis knocked off Indiana.
Brooklyn earned the No 8 seed and will visit
top-seeded Atlanta on Sunday for their playoff
opener. If Indiana won, the Nets would have missed
the postseason for the first time since moving to
Brooklyn in 2012.
In Memphis, Tennessee, Marc Gasol had 33
points and 13 rebounds as the Grizzlies downed
the Pacers 95-83 to end Indiana s playoff hopes.
Memphis earned the Western Conference s fifth
seed with the victory and home-court advantage
in a series with fourth-seeded Portland, winners
of the Northwest Division.
The Golden State Warriors finished their best
regular season in club history after Klay Thompson
scored 25 points before resting in the second half
of a 133-126 win over the Denver Nuggets.
Starters on both sides rested most of the game,
with the Warriors tuning up for the playoffs and
Denver long out of contention. The biggest devel-
opments for Golden State, which secured home-
court advantage throughout the playoffs a couple
weeks ago, came on the out-of-town scoreboard.
The Houston Rockets downed the Utah Jazz
117-91 after James Harden had 16 points, 11
rebounds and ten assists in just three quarters for
his fourth triple-double of the season.
Tyson Chandler had 22 points and 15 rebounds
as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Portland Trail
Blazers 114-98, while LeBron James sat out Cleve-
land s regular-season finale to rest for the playoffs
as the Cleveland Cavaliers came back to beat the
Washington Wizards 113-108 in overtime.
In other games, Kyle Lowry scored 26 points
as the Toronto Raptors finished the regular season
with a club record 49th victory, beating the Char-
lotte Hornetts 92-87, the Chicago Bulls came back
to beat the Atlanta Hawks 91-85 and the Boston
Celtics defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 105-100.
The Los Angeles Lakers ended the season with
their worst record in club history after losing 122-
99 to the Sacramento Kings, the Detroit Pistons
trounced the New York Knicks 112-90 and the
