The first big meeting on clay is approaching. Even without Roger Federer, the plateau of Montecarlo makes your mouth water. Some absent are to be noted. Only Switzerland and Milos Raonic were missing during the initial list. Since then, a few withdrawals have been announced. Injured to the foot in Miami, Dominic Thiem apparently wants to take his time before returning to competition. It was followed by Borna Coric and John Isner. A few days before the tournament, it’s Kei Nishikori who chose not to play on the Rocher. The Japanese had chained well Marseille, Rotterdam, Dubai and Miami and undoubtedly needs to breathe. There are only 17 players in the top 20 left. Novak Djokovic, who resides in Montecarlo, intends to play to secure his No.1 spot, now threatened by Daniil Medvedev. Rafael Nadal will be there too.
