The tournament is part of the nine ATP Tour Masters 1000 events on the ATP Tour and is the first major event of the European clay court season.

The 2023 edition saw more than 140,000 visitors, 38.4 million TV viewers and 167.1 million views on social network. This year, the event will take place from April 6 to 14, 2024, on the legendary courts of the Monte-Carlo Country Club, under the presidency of Miss Mélanie-Antoinette de Massy.


New this year will be a “ click & collect ” service for fast food, modification of the seaside stand of Court Rainier III (to create additional boxes), and a new covered catering area. A new partnership with France Télévisions ensures at least 1 match per day will be broadcast on the france.tv platform and the final will be shown on France 4. This will complement the broadcast of all matches on Eurosport France.


The full players list has now been announced and will include defending champion Andrey Rublev (see below), world number 1 Novak Djokovic, and in-form Jannik Sinner (who is sure to tempt many Italian fans across the border).

Andrey Rublev clinched his first ATP Masters 1000 title; defeating teenager Holger Rune 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 in the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters final. Rublev had to come back from 1-4 down in the third set (when all seemed lost). Check out the highlights:

 In all, Rublev struck 33 winners to earn the 13th and biggest title of his career after 2h34 on court. He sealed sealed victory with his fifth ace of the match, dropping to his knees in celebration.

How to Get there


  • By train: Monaco Monte-Carlo station is located underground in the Condamine district, and passengers can reach all four corners of the Principality from one of its six access points. It is served by local trains (on the Marseille–Ventimiglia railway) and (in summer months) by fast TGV trains. Timetables here.

  • By car: Leave the A8 Autoroute at Exit 56 (direction: Monaco) if travelling towards Italy, or Exit 58 (for Roquebrune Cap Martin) if travelling away from Italy. From these exits, you can reach the centre in less than 20 minutes. Many locals instead prefer to use one of the three famous 'Corniche' roads which hug the coastline, have stunning views, and lots of hairpin bends and little tunnels.

  • Parking (important): Access to Monaco-Ville is restricted to vehicles that are registered in Monaco or to residents of the Alpes Maritimes region. So, as a tourist, you should instead park in the Parking des Pêcheurs car park, from which the centre of Monaco-Ville is just a few minutes’ walk.

  • By bus: Monaco is served, seven days a week between 7am and 9.15pm, by the seven bus routes of the Monaco Bus Company (C.A.M). The network covers all of the main tourist attractions, museums, the exotic garden, business centres, Casino, Stade Louis-II, and more. See here for timetables.
