Monday Play Cancelled In Monte-Carlo
Due to rain, the remainder of Monday action at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters has been cancelled.
Before weather stopped play from continuing for the day, four players advanced to the second round at the Monte-Carlo Country Club: Aslan Karatsev, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, John Millman and Tommy Paul. Play was suspended for the first time just before midday in the Principality, before action resumed for more than an hour at 4:30 p.m.
Five singles matches were in progress when play was cancelled. On Court Rainier III, Felix Auger-Aliassime led Cristian Garin 4-2. Miami Open presented by Itau champion Hubert Hurkacz held a 6-3, 0-1 advantage against Thomas Fabbiano on Court No. 2.
On Court des Princes, Daniel Evans had just taken the first set against 2019 Monte-Carlo runner-up Dusan Lajovic 6-3. Monegasque wild card Lucas Catarina was up a set and a break against Salvatore Caruso 7-6(3), 3-2 on Court 9. Jeremy Chardy was about to serve for the first set at 5-4 against Alexander Bublik.
Each of those matches will be second on court Tuesday. Other players who will be in action include fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, eighth seed Matteo Berrettini and defending champion Fabio Fognini.
