The whole world is excited for the opening of the clay season this Sunday. With the result of the draw yesterday, the world’s two best clay court players, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are back at work in Monte Carlo and might face off in the semifinals. Aside from them, there are 16 awesome players of Top 20 in the Emirates ATP Rankings in the draw, how about that! For sure this will be the match of the year. Raise your hand if you are thrilled!
Djokovic who lived in Monaco is very happy to play because he spends most of his time here when not in any competitions. Guess what?! He just walk or ride a bike to the tennis court. For Novak this will be a great start to the season. “It takes time to adjust as any other switch from different surfaces. I think the key point is movement, to really get your muscles used to harder, more demanding physical work.”
For first quarters, the players to watch out for are Tsonga and Almagro. Nadal should practice harder and be more motivated for second quarter. Who are your picks for the third, fourth and semi?
This is going to be exciting. Who’s your bet?
Monte Carlo Masters begins on Sunday, April 12, 2015 Save the date!
