The 115th edition of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters was held in Monaco from 9 to 17 April. After a two-year pandemic forced the tournament to be cancelled or played behind closed doors, the Monte-Carlo Country Club welcomed spectators for an incredible week. Here is a look back at Saturday, when the two semi-finals were held.
Before diving into the wonderful world of Monegasque tennis in 2022, let’s take a look at the history of the prestigious Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, which celebrated its 115th edition and 125th anniversary this year. Created in 1897, it has been held every year at the Monte-Carlo Country Club since 1928. The current Club was built to improve the facilities of the Principality’s tennis club founded in 1893. The elite of professional players who come to play the tournament can thus meet in an idyllic setting worthy of the name. Since then, the Monte-Carlo Country Club and the ATP Masters 1000 de Monte-Carlo have continued to evolve while preserving their common history and traditions.
As its name suggests, the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters has an official sponsor of choice : Rolex. Through its commitment, the watchmaking brand is helping to perpetuate the traditions of tennis. Rolex formed its first partnership with the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters in 2006 before becoming Title Sponsor three years later. Today, Rolex is guaranteed to be the official sponsor of the tournament until at least 2031.
