The Clay Court tennis season has arrived and the Monte Carlo Masters are the first on the agenda and glory for a competitive crowd goal.
The big story of the week is that Novak Djokovic is back in action and will be more hungry than ever to reassert his dominance over the men’s singles game.
Daniil Medvedev, who claimed to be the world’s No.1 spot briefly, however, said Djokovic’s absence was not the best.
Medvedev is out for action next month or so after revealing he has had a small hernia problem with 2022. King of Clay Rafael Nadal is also out of the Monte Carlo Masters as he recovers from a rib stress fracture sustained in the Indian Wells Masters.
ATP Rankings in Medvedev over a slender 10-point advantage with Djokovic heads into the tournament. He will lose 90pts this week, while Medvedev will lose 180pts. Should Djokovic win the ATP 1000 event, he will re-open the gulf between himself and his competitor.
