Following the ‘Sunshine Double’, which was completed less than two weeks ago, Masters 1000 action kicks off once again this week, with several of the top ATP stars heading to the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters.One big notable name missing is Roger Federer, who is skipping the entire clay court season, though the tournament sees the return of world number one Rafael Nadal, a ten-time champion in Monte Carlo who will be making his first appearance on the ATP Tour since his retirement in the Australian Open last eight.
Marin Cilic, Alexander Zverev, and Grigor Dimitrov round out the top four seeds.This section of the draw is undoubtedly highlighted by the return of the ‘King of Clay’, who looked mighty impressive in his return at the Davis Cup this past weekend, though this section is graced by two other notable names; fifth seed Thiem, who is back on by far his best surface, and former champion Novak Djokovic, who is continuing his return to the tour.
Goffin does not necessarily have an easy start, with Denis Shapovalov a potential second round opponent for the Belgian, whilst projected third round opponent 11th seed Roberto Bautista Agut has played well in Monte Carlo in the past. Dimitrov may also have a tricky start against either Paolo Lorenzi or Filip Krajinovic, though his projected third round opponent, 15th seed and 2017 runner-up Albert Ramos-Vinolas, has been struggling for form of late. Several dangerous players are here, such as clay-court specialist Philipp Kohlschreiber and Benoit Paire, though both Dimitrov and Goffin will be hopeful of kickstarting their seasons.
After an average start to the season, Zverev kickstarted his season with a run to the final in Miami, and having played well on clay before, he could be primed for a strong run on what is his first tournament of the surface. The German should start well, with Gilles Muller his likely (and a beatable first round opponent), though a potential third round clash against 13th seed Fabio Fognini could prove to be interesting; the Italian starts against a qualifier, and has been fairly consistent in the early stages of the 2018 season.
The 2018 Monte Carlo Masters got underway on Sunday as the beginning of the singles draw marked its official opening, and Karen Khachanov beat Thanasi Kokkinakis to become the first entrant to play his way into the second round.Khachanov defeated Kokkinakis 7-5, 6-4 and will face either Gilles Simon or Adrian Mannarino in the next stage of the competition, with that French duo scheduled to face off on Monday afternoon.Mischa Zverev is also into the second round after beating Canadian teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime in three sets.
The German looked on course for a straightforward win after taking the first set 6-2 but dropped the second on a tie-break. He came roaring back in the third set and clinched it 6-1 to book a meeting with France’s Lucas Pouille.The French revolution continued as Pierre-Hugues Herbert defeated Andrej Martin 6-3, 6-3. Italy also had a pair of competitors advance, as Andreas Seppi and Marco Cecchinato progressed from the batch of qualifiers.Read on for a roundup of Sunday’s results from Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in France.
Only two breaks were conceded in the match: Kokkinakis in his last service of the first set and his penultimate serve in the second—two well-timed pushes from Khachanov that mean his contest continues.Chardy and Hugues-Herbert advanced following wins over Mahut and Martin, with neither looking particularly troubled as they made their return to rubbing shoulders with some of the sport’s more elite stars.
Seppi and Cecchinato also went through after they got the better of Spaniards Marcel Granollers-Pujol and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, respectively.Cecchinato faced early opposition from Garcia-Lopez, but the 34-year-old’s stamina appeared to wilt as he faded to a 6-4, 6-2 defeat. Seppi, meanwhile, rarely looked to be out of second gear as he beat Granollers-Pujol 6-3, 6-3.
Stefanos Tsitsipas will join them in the main draw after the 19-year-old Greek challenger beat Bosnian Mirza Basic 6-1, 6-4, as will Dusan Lajovic after he triumphed 6-4, 6-4 over Sergiy Stakhovsky.German Florian Mayer advanced as a lucky loser at the Monte Carlo Masters despite suffering a 7-5, 6-0 defeat to Ilya Ivashka, the Belarusian who will face off against Fabio Fognini in his first-round fixture.
