Roger Federer is in Monte Carlo getting ready for the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. Like many who visit the Principality–known for its glamorous casinos–Federer is hoping his luck will change. It’s not easy to name tournaments Roger Federer has never won, but the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters is one of them. He’s 0-for-12 starts in Monaco, after losing a close final last year to a surging Stan Wawrinka.
That was Federer’s fourth finals appearance at Monte-Carlo. He says he’s feeling well this year, with extra rest coming in. “I came here early on Thursday to practice on Centre Court, which is something I haven’t always had the chance to do, ” he told the press at the event. “Clearly I feel I’ve done all the right things to prepare.”
