Thanks to a number of readers for alerting me to Roger Federer's recent change of heart.
The 13-time Grand Slammer has decided to play Monte Carlo next week to get an early jump on his clay-court season:
Via his website:
I have decided to accept a wildcard into the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tournament that begins on Monday. I will head there this weekend to start the clay court season.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support.
All the best,
I guess Fed's season isn't going as he probably planned - duh. At least this will give us fans an early opportunity to see where his clay-court game stands in relation to the big boys. Let's hope it's further along than his hard-court game, though.
