Rafa Roundup: Who Will Win Monte Carlo?


Rafael Nadal will be in Monte Carlo tomorrow. He will take on poker player Vanessa Selbst in a heads-up charity game at 6 pm CEST.

… The world’s number one tennis player and PokerStars ambassador, Rafa Nadal, will face the world’s best female poker player, Vanessa Selbst, in a heads-up poker game at Casino de Monte Carlo on Friday, April 11.

… Monte Carlo is where it will really get serious for the Rafael Nadal-Novak Djokovic rivalry. It’s the first stop of the European clay-court season and longtime watchtower to Nadal’s Roland Garros fortress. But this time Djokovic comes in as the defending champion and a three-match winning streak versus Nadal.

… Según los datos del informe, Rafa Nadal es el deportista español con mayor conocimiento internacional, con una media del 75%. Pero además, el estudio arroja datos interesantes por distintos países, donde podemos ver como varían estos deportistas.

… There will be no opportunity for Djokovic to return to No. 1 at next week’s Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, where he is the defending champion after ending Nadal’s eight-year reign last year. Indeed, while there is a possibility that Djokovic could usurp the Spaniard as early as mid-May on the Monday after the Mutua Madrid Open, it is more likely that any change at the top – if indeed there is one at all – would come deep into the clay-court season, possibly at Roland Garros in early June.
