Monte Carlo Tennis draw
- Nadal in Djokovic’s Half
The first question was always going to be whether Nadal will be in the Djoker’s or Roger’s half of the draw. The fact that he is in the Djoker’s half is good news for Fedfans. Even though Nadal is vulnerable at this point, clay is still his strength and if he reaches the semi-final stage you would expect him to beat Roger. So as a Fedfan myself I am quite happy with that, because it means should Roger make the final we probably won’t have to see him defeated by Nadal for a fourth time in the Monte Carlo final. Of course Nadal can still make the final, but the Djoker must be the favorite at this point against him given their respective forms.
- Wawrinka in Federer’s Quarter
Although Roger escaped Nadal in his half he has Stan to deal with in his quarter. If last year’s Monte Carlo final is anything to go by that means that Roger could lose in the quarters, but my guess it that Fedfans still prefer Stan in Roger’s quarter than Nadal his his half. At least if Roger gets by Stan then you’d like his chances to make it to the final. Stan’s form has been poor in his last three tournaments again after a good start to the year. Can he suddenly ignite again? Sure, but there is no guarantee he will even make it to the quarter finals. The same is true for Roger, but at least his form is more consistent.
- Ferrer in Nadal’s Quarter Again
Last year Ferrer was in Nadal’s quarter in Monte Carlo and he ended up beating Nadal. This year Nadal’s confidence is even lower than last year when he came off a Miami final. So this will be a huge challenge for him should him and Ferrer both make the quarters. Ferrer is solid, and you can bet he will test Nadal to the limits.
