Rafael Nadal will arrive in Monte-Carlo on Thursday. The Spaniard will be restricted to the player’s hotel, according to Marca. Nadal will be the third seed for the tournament, but his record on clay will mean he immediately starts as the strong favourite despite his recent injury.
While Nadal will be in the players’ hotel, rivals Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, and Daniil Medvedev will all allowed to stay in their own homes. Monte-Carlo will be the first tournaments for Djokovic and Nadal since the Australian Open.
Djokovic won the title in Melbourne. Nadal, meanwhile, missed the whole ATP Cup with a back injury. At present, every member of the top ten are signed up to play, with the exceptions of Dominic Thiem and Roger Federer.
