In addition to Roger Federer and Gael Monfils, the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 event, which will start on Sunday, won't have another top player in the field, it means Nick Kyrgios, who has withdrawn due to fatigue after playing the Davis Cup quarter-finals tie in Brisbane against United States last weekend, where he beat Jack Sock and John Isner carrying Australia into the semifinals.
It took a lot of effort and so Kyrgios decided not to play in Monte Carlo, where he never made an appearance. Like in 2015 and 2016, he will start the clay-courts season in Estoril, that will be played from 1 to 7 May like Munich, where also Gael Monfils is set to make his comeback.
Just after Davis Cup, about the clay-courts season Kyrgios had said: ´I was hurting physically and they (the team physios in Brisbane) did well to keep me in good shape so we could get into the semi-finals. I have been taking care of my body the last few months.
I have had my physio with me every day. I need a rest. Emotionally this week takes it out of you. I’ll look forward to the claycourt season. I had some good results last year.' ALSO READ: Jim Courier: 'Nick Kyrgios can and should end 2017 in the top five'
