Hall Of Fame
The clash is between Djokovic and Rublev. In the 2021 Monte Carlo Open Djokovic was sent packing after losing in Round 2. The same happened in 2022 - so like last year he returned to his home city to play. In 2022 he did the same by going to play in Belgrade.
In the case of Rublev he has decided that he was not ready to play on clay this year and he also decided to go to Belgrade as well.
In the series Djokovic is seeded as no 1 and Rublev as number 2. If they do meet it would be in the final. I will keep members posted on what happened in the tournament In Round 2 -
* Djokovic will face either Djere or Medjedovic; and
* Rublev will face either Laaksonen or a qualifier.
