Monte Carlo Quick Hits April 15, 2014

  • Roberto Bautista Agut vs. Fabio Fognini is the best round of 32 match one could expect on clay.
  • Rafael Nadal and Pablo Andujar are one match away from a re-match of the best clay court match of 2014 to this point.  
  • I don’t want to read too much into David Ferrer’s 6-3, 6-0 demolition of Jeremy Chardy, but I don’t think Chardy is ever going to be a top flight player.  He might sneak into the top 10 at some point in his career, but when I first saw Chardy in 2009 I thought me might just become a top tier guy.
  • Roger Federer has either added points or equalled his 2013 totals at every event he’s played in 2014.  That continues in Monte Carlo as he did not play the event last year.
  • Djokovic is defending 1000 points here so he and Rafa could have an 800 point swing if a rematch goes the other way this year.
  • After Indian Wells and Miami, Grigor Dimitrov has a chance to regain his early 2014 momentum.
