The Monte Carlo Rolex Masters: What Happened?

If you’ve never heard of The Monte Carlo Rolex Masters (what we highly doubt), it is a worldwide sporting event that features op 10 international players playing in a sumptuous setting, offering a sweeping breathtaking view of the Mediterranean. Not without a reason, it is considered the No. 1 major European tournament in the prestigious ATP World Tour Masters 1000 category.

After a two-year pandemic forced the tournament to be cancelled or played behind closed doors, the newest edition of the annual tournament, the 115th to be exact, returned from 9th to 17th of April 2022 at the one-of-a-kind Monte-Carlo Country Club.

After days of consistent and aggressive tennis, Stefanos Tsitsipas successfully defended his Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters title, dispatching Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 6-3, 7-6(3) to capture his second ATP Masters 1000 crown. 

“I am very proud of myself,” Tsitsipas said in his on-court interview. “Things weren’t going well at one point, but I managed to stay composed to finish the match off. I am really proud with the belief I put in my game. Sometimes you doubt yourself, but it is always important to keep your head high."

Although the list of 82 contestants was impressive, Stefanos still managed to counter everyone with his impeccable skills and willingness to win. 

Most notable players included:

Novak Djokovic
Daniil Medvedev
Alexander Zverev
Stefanos Tsitsipas
Felix Auger-Aliassime
Casper Ruud
Carlos Alcaraz
