It's the all
"men's club" of famous tennis champs who gather each
year in April at the clay courts of the swank Monte Carlo Country
This year, tickets go on sale in the autumn of 2015 and are available at Ticketmasters and other online ticket vendors. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the complete TV schedule
of the Masters traditionally covered on the Tennis Channel in
the U.S., Sky Sports in the UK and FOX Sports in Australia, with official live streaming of all matches on TennisTV.com.
One of the oldest and most traditional tennis championships, the Monte Carlo tournament was first held in 1897. It later became known as the Monte Carlo Open, before becoming part of the Masters Series in the early 1990's. Today, it is a top tournament with a Monte Carlo "glam" factor that few other venues can equal.
The storied tennis courts of Monte Carlo include a roster of winners including Bjorn Borg (in 1977, 1979, and 1980), Ilie Năstase (1971-73), and Argentina's Guillermo Vilas (1976, 1982). Most recently, Novak Djokovic battled Spanish champ and legendary 'King of Clay' Rafael Nadal in 2013 to win that year's tournament, putting a stop to Nadal's record-breaking eight consecutive wins at Monte Carlo from 2005-2012.
In 2014, it was dark horse Stanislas "Stan" Wawrinka who won the title against tennis legend, and fellow Swiss player, Roger Federer.
