  • Roger Federer on clay

Djokovic is the top seed for the Monte Carlo Masters but, after winning the Australian Open in January, he suffered surprise early exits in Indian Wells and Miami, losing in the third and fourth rounds respectively.

That was on hard courts, however, and clay is kinder to the 32-year-old Nadal's battered knees.

In opening first-round play Sunday, there were wins for three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland, ninth-seeded Borna Coric of Croatia, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Argentine Guido Pella. "I've loved playing on clay the last couple of years, I hope I can win the title". "I mean, certainly other Slams more than Roland Garros for Roger are, so to say - he has more chance to win other slams than Roland Garros, but he has won Roland Garros in the past". "I really, aside of maybe one year where he changed a racquet and dropped to I think No., whatever, 7, 8, and then he was injured for five, six months, dropped his ranking to out of 15, those maybe two times in the last 15 years have been maybe where I saw him play 10, 20% worse than he's playing on the level that he's playing on all the time", Djokovic continued.

"I think Rafa always is a very clear favourite on any clay court in the world, and it doesn't change. I started to know a bit more what I had to do". Dominic Thiem, of course. He's still my idol, he's the best player in history.

I thought that we kind of took a couple of punches from them, took a couple of runs and still kept our composure. The Nuggets have been a surprise team this season, ascending all the way to the No. 2 seed in the West.

Nadal could not help but compare his own years of fitness problems to those of Woods, who has faced multiple back surgeries and other roadblocks when it looked like his career might be close to ending.

"But it depends on how he's feeling physically. It's as good as it gets", the Serb mentioned. He's won all the big ones. - Rafael Nadal won 46 straight matches in Monte-Carlo from 2005-13, but Djokovic brought that streak to an end in the 2013 final, putting on a clinical display to defeat the Spaniard in straight sets and lift his first title at the Masters 1000 tournament. "He is who he is, so you always expect highest from him", Djokovic mentioned.

While Roger Federer is not playing the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, he is set to compete on clay for the first time since 2016. "But I like it, I embrace it, and this is definitely one of if not my favourite tournament to play and I can't wait to step on the court".
