Juan Monaco makes the headlines once again as he is the mover of the week with his brilliant tennis last week at the Internazionali BNL D’Italia. His incredible run to the quarterfinals of the Masters 1000 event was interrupted by the most dreaded foe for all athletes, injury. He knocked out Stan Wawrinka, the number 4 ranked player on the ATP Tour before he was forced to withdraw prior to his quarterfinal match against lucky-loser, Lucas Pouille. Monaco was just working his way back from wrist surgery and this hip injury has got to be troubling for him and his team. We wish Pico a speedy recovery and hope that he will be ready in time for Roland Garros. It would be a shame if after such brilliant tennis on clay he is forced the missed the biggest clay court tournament of the season.
