Thursday’s rainy weather made for a busy Friday at the Monte Carlo Masters, with Nadal, Murray and Ljubicic forced to double up on matches to keep things on schedule. I was lucky to catch the Davydenko vs. Murray quarterfinal (Andy beat Fabio Fognini earlier in the day) and thought it was an exciting match: two world-class movers and returners grinding it out. Good to see the Russian back from injury: I’m one of those weird people who actually enjoys watching Kolya play!
Here are some of Friday’s highlights:
Saturday brings us Wawrinka vs. Djokovic and Murray vs. Nadal.
Here’s hoping for a Spain vs. Switzerland final!
