Nadal and Djokovic, confirmed for Monte Carlo

The three best tennis players in the world ranking, the Serbian Novak Djokovic, the russian Daniil Medvedev and spanish Rafael Nadal will be in the next edition of Monte Carlo Masters 1,000, which will be held behind closed doors due to the health crisis from next April 10, the organizers indicated this Thursday.

The 114th edition of the tournament, which Nadal has won eleven times, will feature 9 of the top 10 in the ranking for his return to the circuit, after last year’s cancellation due to covid.

The organizers indicated that a sanitary protocol will be implemented so that the tournament takes place in the best conditions, in consultation with the French and Monegasque authorities.

For the second year, they explain, the Monte Carlo grandstands will be without an audience, but its organizers are pleased that the competition that traditionally opens the European clay court calendar can take place.
