After a rare defeat in Monte Carlo to Fabio Fognini, Rafael Nadal will be looking to get his game on track—as we saw in 2015, when he failed to win any clay events at all, even he can lose some confidence on dirt. He’ll start this week against either Marius Copil or Leonardo Mayer. If all goes as planned, he’ll play Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarters, and Dominic Thiem in the semis.
Also here: Monte Carlo champion Fognini, Alexander Zverev, and Grigor Dimitrov.
