The European clay season is upon us, with the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters kicking off on 10 April. The tournament, the first of three clay ATP Masters 1000 events of the year, will subject players to a stern test as they look to transition to the red clay from hardcourt.
World No. 1 Novak Djokovic leads the field at the only non-mandatory Masters 1000 tournament of the season. The Serb will be participating in just his second event this season, having crashed out in the quarterfinals in Dubai in February.
The two-time winner will face tough competition from the likes of defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas and recently-crowned Miami Open champion Carlos Alcaraz.
Other title contenders include Olympic gold medalist Alexander Zverev, Casper Ruud and Jannik Sinner. Andrey Rublev, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Cameron Norrie have won titles on hardcourt this year and will be aiming to replicate their success on the red dirt.
Despite the star power in the draw, this year's Monte-Carlo Masters will have some of the biggest names missing in action. 11-time winner Rafael Nadal is nursing a rib stress fracture that he sustained during the Indian Wells Masters.
World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev is out for a couple of months to tend to a small hernia, while World No. 6 Matteo Berrettini has undergone surgery on his right hand. Former US Open champion Dominic Thiem will miss the tournament after testing positive for COVID-19.
Although the Monte-Carlo Masters will not be graced by a few top names this time around, there will still be plenty of mouthwatering matches over the course of the week to keep fans engrossed.
