I like Murray and Verdasco and Rafa and ...


Looking ahead to tomorrow's action in Monte Carlo shows some intriguing matchups on the horizon. I know that there's been a lot of talk about Monte Carlo going down in quality over the past few years as far as player participation goes, but I think this is a great field with great players left--and possibly great matches ahead.

With all those "greats" in the last sentence, the tournament has to be good, right?

Look at what's coming up:

Andy Murray vs. Julien Benneteau, Fernando Verdasco against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Novak Djokovic facing off with Alexandr Dolgopolov, and Kei Nishikori taking on Tomas Berdych. And that's just a little bit of the Round of 16.

Premier matchups all around, worthy of a Masters Series 1000 event.
