Having seen his eight-year winning streak in Monte Carlo ended by Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal is quickly refocusing on winning an eighth title at the Barcelona Open.
Going into another clay-court tournament that Nadal has dominated, the Spaniard said he still needs to improve following a lengthy injury layoff before he's able to beat the likes of Djokovic in a final.
Speaking in Barcelona on Monday, Nadal said he was ''neither angry nor sad'' about losing the Monte Carlo Masters title, but ''against the world No. 1 you can win or lose, and this time I lost.''
Nadal says ''I think I'm on the right track but missing things after all that happened.''
Nadal has reached five consecutive finals since returning in February from a knee injury - winning three, and losing two.
