The Monte Carlo Masters will be played behind closed doors

The organization maintains the tournament, but without an audience and "following the extension of the state of health emergency until May 3".


The Monte Carlo Tennis Masters 1,000, scheduled for next April 10-18, will be played behind closed doors, following the health regulations in force in the Principality, the organizers indicated this Friday. The first important appointment of the season with the clay was canceled last edition due to the coronavirus pandemic, which swept away a good part of the tennis calendar.

On this occasion, the organizers maintain the tournament, in which the Spanish Rafael Nadal holds the record for titles with 11 winches, but without an audience, "following the latest government regulations that extend the state of sanitary emergency until May 3" they noted.

There are three clay court tournaments on the ATP calendar before the Monte Carlo Masters 1,000, which will take place a week before the Barcelona tournament. The 1,000 Masters in Madrid, from 2 to 9, and Rome, from 9 to 16, before Roland Garros, between May 23 and June 6, are scheduled in May. The clay Grand Slam was played last season in October due to the pandemic and with only 1,000 daily spectators in the stands.
