Monte Carlo Quick Hits April 16, 2014

  • Rafael Nadal starts his quest for 9 (NINE!) Monte Carlo titles in 10 years.  Under a lot of grading scales 90% is a B+ or A-, but if ATP Tennis is graded on a curve, Rafa just gave a failing grade to everyone else on tour.
  • Fabio Fognini’s 7-6, 6-4 win over Bautista Agut delivered a great Rd of 32 match.
  • Roger Federer will now add at least round of 16 points to his ranking total because he skipped Monte Carlo last year.
  • Stanislas Wawrinka’s 6-0, 6-2 demolition of Marin Cilic may mean that a surface change has snapped Wawrinka after his post-Melbourne hangover.
  • Grigor Dimitrov may be a strong clay court opponent due to young legs and a crafty game.
  • Seppi knocked out my man Pablo Andujar in 3 sets while hitting this shot.
