Monte Carlo: Defending champion Juan Carlos Ferrero beat America's Vince Spadea 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday to reach the final of the $2.6 million Monte Carlo Masters. Ferrero will play Argentina's Guillermo Coria, who produced a superb display to beat last year's runner-up and former French Open champion Carlos Moya 7-6 (3), 6-2. Spaniard Moya, seeded second, saved five match points but had already missed several chances to take control of the match in the opening set. In a tradition normally reserved for soccer, Coria, 21, asked for Moya's shirt after their match. Moya accepted. "If I play him again, he will soon have my whole collection," Moya joked, moments after his loss. Ferrero, also from Spain, beat Moya in last year's final, but said he would be equally respectful of Coria - a semifinalist here two years ago. (AP)
