2024 Monte-Carlo Masters Thursday SCHEDULE and PREVIEW featuring DJOKOVIC-MUSETTI, ZVEREV-TSITSIPAS and SINNER in action

Thursday, 11 April 2024 at 08:16
The schedule has been confirmed ahead of the last 16 matches this Thursday (April 11th) at the 2024 Monte-Carlo Masters, with the top seeds still in competition. Novak Djokovic will have a rematch of his match against Lorenzo Musetti in 2023 at the same tournament, where the Italian surprised by defeating the world No. 1 with a score of 4-6, 7-5, 6-4. This time, Nole will seek to go deeper in Monte-Carlo, as he hasn't gone beyond the third round since 2019.
World No. 2 Jannik Sinner will also be in action, facing the German Jan-Lennard Struff to maintain the excellent form he has already shown on clay. Struff won't be an easy challenge, as he is a clay specialist who reached the final of the Masters 1000 Madrid Open a year ago and defeated Sebastian Baez (the leader in clay victories in 2024) in the first round.
The day will feature an exciting duel between the 2-time champion Stefanos Tsitsipas (2021, 2022) and world No. 5 Alexander Zverev, with Tsitsipas holding a favorable 9-5 head-to-head record (4-1 on clay). 3-time Grand Slam finalist Casper Ruud will play against Hubert Hurkacz, who comes off winning the Estoril Open last week and maintains a streak of 6 consecutive victories on clay.

On the other hand, there will be a clash of Russians when world No. 4 Daniil Medvedev takes on Karen Khachanov. Similarly, there will be a matchup between Australians, with Alex de Minaur facing Alexei Popyrin (who surprised champion Rublev the day before). Finally, the 14th seed Ugo Humbert will be challenged by Lorenzo Sonego, who came through the qualifiers and eliminated Felix Auger-Aliassime.
