The king of brick dust made his appearance in Monte-Carlo to kick off the season that suits him best. Rafael Nadal is already training on the courts where he will play his first Masters 1000 of the season with the aim of repeating, as so many other times, at Roland Garros at the end of the tour.
Without much anticipation of the trip it was because the Principality is a place with conditions similar to those he has experienced in Manacor, where he has invested weeks in training on clay after recover from your back discomfort.
His tournament record is 71-5 with 11 titles. In his last participation he fell in the semifinals in 2019 against Fabio Fognini by 6-4 and 6-2, ultimately the champion.
Bonjour Rafa! 👋😍
