Novak Djokovic updated his 2018 schedule on his official website. The former world No. 1 officially added the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters to his list, that will be played from 15 to 22 April. Djokovic had not put the first Masters 1000 of the season on clay until this week, despite he had entered in the entry list when it came out on March 19.
It may be a good sign, as after his straight sets loss to Benoit Paire, Djokovic had said that playing in Monte Carlo was the initial plan, but 'let's see what happens', he added, showing to be unsure. He may have reflected about it and taken a decision.
But it may also not mean anything, as Djokovic will have to see how he feels physically in the transition from hard to clay courts. The 12-time Grand Slam winner, who triumphed in Monte Carlo in 2013 and 2015, is also committed to Madrid, Rome, Roland Garros.
