Monte-Carlo: the draw

13.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger will open the clay-court season with the Masters 1000 tournament in Monte-Carlo this week.

After a first-round bye, Roger will either meet Ivo Karlovic (ATP 52) or Radek Stepanek (ATP 40) in round number two.

He could then play Jerzy Janowicz (ATP 21) in the round of the last sixteen, before possibly facing Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 12) in the quarter-finals.

Roger could then be in for another clash with Novak Djokovic (ATP 2) - the current title-holder - in the semis.

Thank you CPISCEAN. That will be interesting to read. I had been wondering why we were playing in Suisse again. I am not complaining though!

I would like to see that backhand down the line again as well. Ironically that is one of the shot which Stan was using so effectively against Nadal. I wonder why Roger has gone away from using it? There must be a reason.
Thank you FANCY for the time of the match. I will not be able to watch but I will send him strength and support mentally! Come on Roger, Allez!

GOOD LUCK DEAR ROGER IN MONTE CARLO AND GOOD LUCK TO STAN TOO. Much love to you both and your dear families.

Hi CJM, the reason that Switzerland is hosting the semis is because the last time Switzerland and Italy played, they would have played in Italy. Here is a link to how this is decided if you are interested. Look at second paragraph under World Group title.

We all want to see Roger winning and it's not about Stepanek, it's about Nadal and Djokovic. With Djokovic it's age, motivation and it will always be 50/50. But as far as Nadal is concerned: Roger should get back to FedEx and play more backhand down the line. At the beginning of his career he used to count more on that shot and it is exactly this shot that makes him invincible. There is nothing Nadal can surprise you with, go for it make him a waitress :)!!
