The 32-year-old Swiss will be making his first Monte-Carlo appearance since a quarter-final exit in 2011 (l. to Melzer), and his 11th overall. He has a 23-10 tournament record.

Federer, a winner of seven different Masters 1000 tournaments, will be looking to win the Monte-Carlo title for the first time. He finished runner-up to Nadal in three straight visits, from 2006-08. 

He claimed his last clay-court title in 2012, when he defeated Czech Tomas Berdych in the Mutua Madrid Open final.
