Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz have been placed in the same half of the draw at the Monte Carlo Masters, potentially setting up a semi-final clash between the two. Djokovic is the No. 1 seed and is looking to secure his third win in the event. However, his path to the last four is not easy, with Lorenzo Musetti posing as a possible banana skin in the third round. Andrey Rublev, the defending champion, also awaits as a possible quarter-final opponent for Djokovic.

Alcaraz, on the other hand, has shown a strong affinity for clay courts with seven titles to his name on the surface. His opening match at Monte Carlo will be against either Felix Auger-Aliassime or a qualifier, with Casper Ruud potentially waiting in the quarter-finals. The young Spanish player will be looking to make his mark on the tournament and continue his impressive rise in the world of tennis.

Italian player Jannik Sinner, ranked No. 2 in the world, will be another player to watch at Monte Carlo. Sinner will face the winner of the match between Alejandro Davidovich Fokina or Sebastian Korda in his opening match. Daniil Medvedev, the No. 4 seed, looms as a possible semi-final opponent for Sinner, although he may first have to overcome Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals.

Grigor Dimitrov, who recently showed a return to form with a run to the final of the Miami Open, will kick off his Monte Carlo campaign against wild card Valentin Vacherot. British player Jack Draper is set to face Hubert Hurkacz in his opening match at the tournament.
