Last year, Stefanos Tsitsipas lifted the trophy at the Monte-Carlo Country Club to win for the second consecutive time, and become the first to do so since Rafael Nadal in 2017. Both of them were set to compete also in 2023, but the Spaniard withdrew from the event, which runs from April 9th to 16th in 2023.
But the field will be as competitive as ever this year. Novak Djokovic, who was banned from entering the United States and competing at the Sunshine Double, will play his first event in a while and he will be motivated to add to his two titles in Monte Carlo.
But there are plenty of youngsters that will be trying to stop these three previous winners. Leading the field of contenders was supposed to be Carlos Alcaraz, who won back-to-back clay-court titles in Barcelona and Madrid last year, but he also withdrew from the tournament shortly after Nadal.
Daniil Medvedev, who expressed his dislike of the slow courts multiple times in the past, will be also one of the contenders as he's the former world no. 1.
There are also some notable absences from the entry list as some players didn't sign up due to various reasons, which range from injuries to personal preference. Players skipping the event are Nick Kyrgios, Marin Cilic, John Isner, J.J. Wolf, and Jenson Brooksby. Therefore be sure to check the full entry list for the 2023 Monte-Carlo Masters below.
