Tennis royalty rules Monaco in April as the Principality hosts the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, April 15-23, 2017, a tournament that dates back to 1897.
Rafael Nadal won the title 8 consecutive times between 2005 and 2012; then Novak Djoković beat him in 2013, Stanislas Wawrinka won in 2014, Djoković again in 2015, and then Nadal took it back in 2016. This year, watch Nadal in action as he tries to hang on to his crown, and the 2,750,00€ purse, of course.
Ticket prices are surprisingly affordable: as low as 20€ for the high seats for the qualifying matches, so you can watch world class tennis for practically the price of 2 movies. Even the finals are not bad at only 47 to 101€ .
Easy to access, the SNCF is opening up the normally shuttered Monte Carlo Tennis Club train station, so the train will let you off right at the entry. By the way, the Monte-Carlo Tennis Club is not only not in Monte-Carlo, it’s not even in Monaco, it’s actually located just across the border, in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.
World-class tennis, affordable tickets, gorgeous weather, sea-view tennis courts, and door-to-door service to boot… what’s not to ‘love’?
