montecarlotennismasters.com: April 12 – 20 2014 The first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 clay-court tournament of the year gets underway on Sunday in Monte-Carlo, with World No. 1 Rafael Nadal looking to win the title for a record ninth time, having been dethroned after eight successive victories last year by Novak Djokovic.

 

Defending champion Djokovic is bidding to win his fifth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title in a row, having closed 2013 with victories in Shanghai and Paris, and completed the Indian Wells-Miami double for the second time in his career last month. The European clay-court swing could prove pivotal for the Serb in his bid to reclaim the World No. 1 mantle in the Emirates ATP Rankings back from Nadal.

 

In 34 of the past 36 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments, the title has been won by one of the Big Four (Nadal, Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray). The only exceptions have been at the BNP Paribas Masters in 2010 (Robin Soderling) and 2012 (David Ferrer). Murray is not competing this week at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, but Federer is set to play for the first time since 2011. The Swiss, a three-time runner-up at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, is vying for his 22nd ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown. Full article
