Novak Djokovic on the charge

Novak Djokovic’s 2020 clay-court schedule is now complete with the world No 1 confirming he will once again take part in the Monte-Carle Masters.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner had previously announced he would compete in the Madrid Open and Italian Open as part of his Roland Garros preparation.

Djokovic is the defending champion in the Spanish capital after he beat Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece in the 2019 final while he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal in Rome last year.

He has now added a third clay-court tournament ahead of the French Open as he will also compete in the Monte-Carlo Masters, an event that he won in 2013 and 2015, with the news confirmed on his official website.

Djokovic exited the ATP Masters 1000 tournament at the quarter-final stage last year as he lost in three sets against Daniil Medvedev from Russia.

This year’s Monte-Carlo Masters runs from April 13-17 in the Principality.
