With both world No.2 Carlos Alcaraz and 11-time champion Rafael Nadal pulling out, Norrie will be one of the players to watch next week.
A former semi-finalist at Monte Carlo, Dan Evans enjoyed his career-best ATP Masters result to date at the Country Club back in 2021. The British No.2 knocked out four players inside the top 35 en route to the final four, including a first career win over world No.1 Novak Djokovic. Evans will be hoping to get his form back on track at one of the biggest events of the season.
Jack Draper has been awarded a wild card to this year’s event, where he is set to make his debut. Draper impressed at Indian Wells last month, reaching the fourth round before retiring with injury. Former world No.1 and three-time semi-finalist Andy Murray is also a late addition to this year's star-studded line-up.
Returning to defend their title this year will be three-time Grand Slam and Nitto ATP Finals champions, Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram. The pair lifted their second Masters title and first trophy on clay at the Monte Carlo Country Club in 2022 and will be hoping to repeat their success this time around.
World No.1 duo Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof will have their eyes on adding the Monte Carlo trophy to their impressive haul of three Masters crowns since joining forces in January 2022.
Sixth seeds Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara will be set to mount a serious challenge this time around, having won their only ATP title last year on clay, in Hamburg. The pair have already tasted success in Adelaide earlier this season and will be looking to add a first Masters title to their names.
Elsewhere, Jamie Murray is set to play with New Zealand’s Michael Venus once again, while Evans could team up with Argentina’s Francisco Cerundolo.
