Rafa leads Dimitrov 11-1 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series, which includes wins for the Spaniard at this event in the 2013 quarter-finals and last year’s semi-finals.
Tomorrow is another good test against Grigor, so let’s see.
I need to play well again.
Rafa owns a 69-4 record at Monte-Carlo. Our champ captured eight titles in a row from 2005 to 2012, and he has lifted the trophy the past three years, winning 15 consecutive matches since his SF loss to Djokovic in 2015. He has won an Open Era record 57 clay-court titles and he has the best career winning percentage on clay.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
