Djokovic reunites with Vajda for Monte Carlo

Rafael Nadal

Unless Nadal wins an 11th Monte Carlo title Roger Federer, who is skipping the claycourt season as he did previous year, will return to the top spot without hitting a ball.

Red clay is the blood that runs through Nadal's veins. "He says he will love to play against me again in best-of-five sets on clay", came the reply.

With tennis on all courts featuring more play deep in the court, Goffin found himself sliding into a tarp and crashing into the wall. 'Federer has the same obligation as the other players to play the Masters 1000.

Two weeks later the 36-year-old announced he will not be competing on the dirt this season, prompting a playful comment from his rival ahead of the Monte Carlo Masters.

Federer, meanwhile, has opted out of the entirety of the clay-court season for the second year in a row, which Nadal joked was simply because he wants to avoid a meeting on Nadal's favoured surface. "Maybe a little contradictory". The Spaniard boasts a 23-15 head-to-heard record against Federer with an impressive 13-2 record on clay with their last meeting on the surface coming in 2013.

"It looks positive and if he doesn't have a physical problem he will have a great season".

Statewide bandh observed in AP over special category status
However, the Centre has been assuring the people of Andhra Pradesh that it will do everything to help the cause of Andhra people. Meanwhile, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said that bandhs were not welcome as they "hamper development".

Rafael Nadal will return to competitive action for the first time since January this week.

Any doubts about Nadal's physical condition were cast aside, however, when he won both his matches for Spain in last weekend's Davis Cup quarter-final against Germany.

"I feel that I'm playing well".

Nadal has a bye into the second round and will face the victor of Aljaz Bedene or Mirza Basic on Wednesday with the two players meeting on Monday in their first-round clash.

Rafael Nadal will return to the ATP Tour after an injury-enforced three-month absence at the Monte Carlo Masters, but coach Carlos Moya says he is struggling for confidence.
