Monte Carlo Entry list: Federer and Del Potro won’t play

Eight top ten players are committed to play the first of three Masters 1000 events on clay.

Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori won´t play there, Roger´s absence is not 100% sure though: he could be awarded with a wild card, that´s what the tournament director Zeljiko Franulovic hopes, but it´s unlikely to see Roger playing on clay two weeks after Miami. He will release his schedule for the clay-courts season in early April.

The French players Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gael Monfils are in the entry list, but the first one will become father soon and so he is not sure to play, while the defending finalist is currently suffering a knee and Achilles injury. Juan Martin Del Potro won´t be there, as he will start his clay-courts season in Estoril. Obviously Rafael Nadal will be there to defend his title and he will try to get his 11th trophy in Monte Carlo, where he always won from 2005 to 2012, and in 2016.
