Monte Carlo Masters 2017

Monte Carlo Masters 2017

In the semifinals Nadal could meet Novak Djokovic, who comes back to compete on the ATP Tour after the elbow injury that forced him to withdraw from Miami.

Murray's place at the Monte Carlo Country Club was confirmed after he was entered into the draw for this year's competition.

The Scot will face Gilles Muller or wild card Tommy Robredo in the second round, with a possible quarter-final against fifth seed Marin Cilic or 2015 runner-up Tomas Berdych. The 14-time Grand Slam champion, who returned from a long injury layoff, ended up as runner-up at Australian Open and Miami Open earlier this year, losing both the title matches to Roger Federer, who will be absent in the upcoming tournament after opting to rest for most part of clay season. "When I started serving again, I had to progress very slowly, but in the last couple of days I've been serving pretty much close to the speed that I would normally", he told The Independent.

They have shared elbow problems that affected only their serve, and also spoke of having too little time to get over milestone achievements in their careers last season.

'There's maybe some things I would have done a little bit differently, ' he said.

"I feel great", the 29-year-old Serb said on Sunday's opening day.

"This is an historic event for me, I'm working to be ready".

"I'm not good at all".

"When I had the injury, I had to take two-and-a-half weeks off serving". But I think if Dan has the right mindset I think he can make matches tricky and hard for a lot of players because he does have skills that not everyone does. "I really enjoy my food, but I'm a disgusting cook unfortunately".

British clash between Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans.

Rafael Nadal's bid to his tenth title in the Masters 1000 of Monte Carlo won't be easy.
