Novak Djokovic, Monte Carlo champion in 2013 and 2015, started the 2021 edition with an outstanding start. The world number 1 gave a good lesson to the transalpine Jannick Sinner, winner this season of the Melbourne-1 tournament and finalist of the ATP Masters 1000 Miami .
Serbian victory for 6-4 and 6-2 in 1h.34 ‘, already round of 16 against the English Dan evans or the Miami champion, the Polish Hubert hurkacz. Both are fiercer on a fast surface than on clay, more if the adverse weather continues, with a leaden sky and more or less frequent rain.
