Given his absence from the realm of tennis for a long term, the 34-year-old has lost his top seed at the Monaco open. Hence, we can see him meeting the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic even before the finals in Monte-Carlo Masters.

This can certainly come as a blessing in disguise for all the Tennis buffs as the two have a history of delivering absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller clashes. With Rafa not a part of the top two seeds, fans can see him clashing with Djokovic most likely in the semi-finals in Monaco.

What’s more exciting here is that Nadal has already promised an action-packed clay season to his fans. As he transcends beyond Monaco, his next destinations would enlist Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, and Paris.

The Spaniard is currently aiming for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title at the French Open 2021. Given his fitness concerns, the fans have to wait and watch in similar regards.
