The clay-court season is officially underway, and the 2014 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters is the first big tournament of the season.
Monte Carlo is the only ATP Masters Series tournament that is not mandatory for the top players. However, 14 of the Top 20 players are in the field.
Players like Andy Murray and John Isner have elected to pass on Monte Carlo, but Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are all playing.
Djokovic won his first title here in 2013, when he ended Nadal's eight-year reign. Nadal will be looking to take back the crown and improve upon his impressive 48-2 record in Monte Carlo.
Can Djokovic win his fifth Masters Series event in a row? Or will Nadal or someone else end his run?
Let's look at the seeds' chances in Monte Carlo.
