The Monte Carlo Country Club is the place where most players go to practice among all the clubs which host an ATP tournament. Many tennis players also reside in Monte Carlo. Francis Truchi, the MCCC director, spoke about the most special things of the club in an interview to Le Journal du Dimanche. 'It happens that people say: "Well, we are at the gym with (Novak) Djokovic, so nice!"', said Truchi.
'Novak is the one you see the most. And there is David Goffin as well, who lives as a club's player. One day, I made him a note that he could use the player's locker room. He replied to me: "No no, I am doing well here." Almost nothing has changed since Prince Louis II (of Monaco) opened the club in 1928.' In order to become a member, you have to be co-opted by two members, pay €7,000 for admission and €1,370 for a year-round pass.
Nadal has the no. 68 locker, Federer has the no. 1. This year the event inaugurated new facilities for TV production, and within 2019 a new building will be able to offer an interview room and conference rooms. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal seems 10 years younger says Paul- Henri Mathieu
