  • Tennis: Nadal écoeure Zverev à Monte-Carlo pour son anniversaire

Albert Ramos-Vinolas a réalisé une nouvelle belle performance au Masters 1000 de Monte-Carlo. Nadal affrontera au troisième tour la 14 tête de série, Alexander Zverev, un Allemand âgé de 19 ans qui l'avait poussé à disputer cinq sets au troisième tour des Internationaux d'Australie en janvier dernier. Et alors que Tomas Berdych (finaliste en 2015) a vaincu la résistance du vétéran Tommy Haas (39 ans) en trois sets (3-6, 6-1, 6-4), Rafael Nadal débutait, lui, sa quête vers un 10e trophée contre Kyle Edmund. Un avantage que le protégé d'Alexandre Lisiecki et Benjamin Balleret (à domicile dans les travées du court Rainier III) réussissait à garder jusqu'au dixième jeu, moment choisi par le n°1 mondial pour égaliser à cinq partout.

Après Novak Djokovic, passé proche d'une élimination précoce mardi contre le Français Gilles Simon, le tenant du titre a, à son tour, éprouvé de grandes difficultés pour accéder aux huitièmes de finale.

Mais après la perte du deuxième set, Wawrinka, no 3 mondial, a vite repris les choses en main (4-1) pour s'imposer en 1 h 22 min et réussir son entrée dans un tournoi qu'il ambitionne de remporter une deuxième fois, après 2014.

Coup de théâtre à Monte-Carlo.

L'espoir britannique était, en effet, plus à l'aise que les 7 et 9 avril sur la terre battue de Rouen, en Coupe Davis, où il avait chuté deux fois en simple contre les Français Lucas Pouille et Jérémy Chardy.

Murray, le N.1 mondial, a renoué avec la compétition par un succès poussif face à l'attaquant Gilles Muller (7-5, 7-5). Le Tchèque, en danger dans chacune de ses rencontres à Monaco, n'a pas trouvé les solutions pour faire déjouer Marin Cilic. Le supporter du FC Barcelone, après sa "remontada" contre Murray, a toutefois calé lors de sa première occasion de conclure. Il a préservé deux balles de manche au neuvième jeu, avant de briser son adversaire et de le battre à zéro pour prendre les devants 6-5.
