Wild cards complete the 2024 edition


Monaco, April 4, 2024 – Tomorrow, Friday, April 5th at 5:00pm, marks the beginning of the 117th edition of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, with the draw for the final tableau taking place at the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology. You can follow the event live on the Tournament’s Facebook pages (https://www.facebook.com/rolexmcmasters) and on Monaco Info (https://www.facebook.com/MonacoInfo).

On this occasion, the Monte-Carlo Country Club, presided over by Miss Melanie-Antoinette de Massy, is preparing to host an exceptional line-up of players once again, including some of the world’s best.

David Massey, the Tournament Director, unveiled today the names of the recipients of the four wild cards for the final tableau, in order of their ATP ranking:

Gaël Monfils: The 2024 edition marks the grand return of the most flamboyant French player to the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters. Currently ranked 45th in the ATP rankings, Gaël Monfils hadn’t participated in the tournament since 2016, the year he reached the final. His form since the start of the year, as shown in his recent match against Carlos Alcaraz at the Miami tournament, demonstrated that the young father still has some beautiful shots in his racket.
Stan Wawrinka: A three-time Grand Slam winner, the Swiss, a resident of Monaco, trains year-round on the clay courts of the Monte-Carlo Country Club. Always highly regarded by the public, Stan Wawrinka, who triumphed in Monaco in 2014, will aim to entertain the stands, notably with his exceptional one-handed backhand.
Matteo Berrettini: This will be the talented Italian’s 4th participation, a former world No. 6 and finalist in the 2021 Wimbledon tournament, who is striving to regain his best form after a 2023 marked by several injuries.
Valentin Vacherot: At 25 years old, the young Monégasque has just achieved the best start to a season in ATP Challenger Tour history by winning three titles since January 1st, 2024.

For the qualifying draw, three out of four wild cards have also been granted by the Tournament Committee. Another member of the Monégasque Davis Cup team, Lucas Catarina, aged 27, will step onto the clay of the Monte-Carlo Country Club. He is indeed one of the beneficiaries, along with the Argentine Diego Schwartzman, a two-time quarterfinalist in the tournament, in 2017 and 2022, and the French player Lucas Pouille, who will make his comeback after a long injury.

Launch of the 2024 edition in the heart of the Principality…

To kick off the Tournament, tennis enthusiasts will have the pleasure of attending a mini-tennis exhibition, open to all, at Place d’Armes, on Saturday, April 6th at 11:00am, between Andrey Rublev and Stéfanos Tsitsipás, the last two winners of the Tournament.
