The Monte-Carlo Masters

Posted Image

( sponsored by Rolex ) is an annual tennis tournament for male professional players held in Roquebrune -Cap-Martin, France, a commune that borders on Monaco. The event is part of the ATP Master Series on the (ATP) Tour.


The tournament is played on clay court surface. As of 2011 it was held every year in the April-May period.


The Monte Carlo tennis championship was first held in 1897. It became an Open event in 1969. Between 1970 and 1989 it was a major tournament of the Grand Prix Tour as part of the Grand Prix Championship Series top tier events, before becoming an ATP Championship Series Single Week tennis event.


Beginning in 2009, Monte Carlo became the only ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament to not have a mandatory player commitment. Most of the top players still elect to play the event.


Rafael Nadal has won the title 7 consecutive times between 2005 and 2011, making him the only player in the open era to win 7 consecutive titles at the same tournament.

For every one reaching this thread (especially from Bing),

Let me assure you that Roger Federer is 100% fit & fine.

To be 100% sure, please see these latest pics of Roger Federer as posted today on our site -----

Why isn't Roger Federer playing at Rolex Monte Carlo open :::


Reasons :::::


1 ) Its not a mandatory ATP 1000 title.


2 ) Also, the clay court at Monte Carlo is the slowest in the world.


3) Nadal has been winning this masters event for the last 7 consecutive years & if he's fully fit, no one can challenge him on this court as it is his fortress.


4) Also, since Roger Federer lost in the Quarter Finals of Monte Carlo Open 2011, so, he will lose only 180 points by not playing.



So, in my humble opinion, its a 100% sensible & wise decision by Team Federer to skip Monte Carlo open.
