Roger Federer skipped Monte Carlo masters, an ATP 1000 tournament which is not mandatory of course. Monte Carlo administration offered a wild card for Roger. The last date to accept the wild card is Apr 11, 2013, just 2 days before the
main draw ceremony starts.
The last time he was offered with the wild card in 2009 where he won his first French open and consecutively the wimbledon too.
The surface is too slow and slippery which is not best suited for Roger’s play and also he didn’t have good record there. And it is not good for the man recovering from back pain issue.
Roger can gain few points and will confirm the place in year ending world tour finals in London. This will reduce the pressure in the later stage of the year. He is also not sure of playing Bercy open and swiss indoors this time. He well get 2 week break after this tournament before appearing in Mutua Madrid open.
Well, let’s see what Roger do.
