The European clay court season is about to get underway. From 9 to 17 April, the best tennis players in the world will compete on the courts of the Monte-Carlo Country Club.
The previous tournament had to be held behind closed doors because of the pandemic, but the 115th edition will take place in full view of spectators. According to the tournament director, Zeljko Franulovic, the Monegasque event expects to welcome “Rafael Nadal, 11-time winner of the tournament and winner of the 2022 Australian Open; Daniil Medvedev, winner of the US Open and finalist of the most recent Australian Open; Alexander Zverev, Olympic champion and winner of the ATP Masters 2021; along with other top-ten players.” With regard to the world no. 1, Novak Djokovic, the director comments, “If he is in compliance with the health requirements stipulated by the government, we will be delighted to welcome him with open arms. But as far as I know, to date, he is not vaccinated.” As for the programme, the draw will be led by the defending champion, Stefanos Tsitsipás, on the terraces of the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo at 5pm on 8 April, and will be broadcast live on Monaco Info. Another highlight is the mini-tennis exhibition on the opening day of the 2022 edition, 9 April, in Place du Casino, featuring two of the tournament’s best players.
