Next up is the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters
The main draw starts on Sunday 14 April with the final to be played on Sunday 21 April at around 2pm local time.
Rafael Nadal will be playing for his ninth straight Monte Carlo title. With Novak Djokovic due to make a late decision about whether or not he will play due an ankle injury, and Roger Federer not playing, the draw is looking good for Rafa and also for No.2 seed Andy Murray (Rafa and Andy could potentially meet in the semi-finals).
