Fed­erer, Nishikori opt out

New Straits Times - - Sport -

PARIS: Roger Fed­erer and Kei Nishikori were the only mem­bers of the world top 10 miss­ing from the en­try list for the Monte Carlo Masters which was re­leased on Thurs­day.

Aus­tralian Open cham­pion Fed­erer, a four-time run­ner-up at the tour­na­ment, had al­ready said he will only de­cide on his clay court sched­ule once the on­go­ing Mi­ami Masters ends next week.

World No 4 Nishikori has only played once in Monte Carlo.

The Ja­panese star lost in the third round in 2012 to To­mas Berdych.

This year’s Monte Carlo Masters takes place from April 16-23 and will see de­fend­ing cham­pion Rafael Nadal chas­ing a 10th ti­tle.
