Whenever and wherever I wanted to, right now I would be here: Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
As a huge fan of tennis, this week (starting today) would be a great time to travel to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin because of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. In spite of its name, this tennis tournament it’s not in Monaco but in a french commune (in the Alpes-Maritimes department) just outside Monaco’s northeastern border. Apart from Roland Garros, this is one of my favourite clay tournaments – together with the ones in Madrid and Rome. These are my favourite tournaments not only because clay is my favourite type of tennis court, but also because Rafael Nadal is considered to be the “King of Clay”. And as his fan there’s nothing better than see him play in these tournaments, especially in Monte-Carlo where he has established some of his most important records. Until this moment, the 2010 final is my favourite.
Because I obviously can’t go there, watching the matches’ live-steams is all I can do. However, I’m still hoping that someday I’ll manage to see him play live. Since I’m on holiday (thank goodness it’s Easter already, sort of) I’ll try to watch this tournament. But because I have a huge amount of stuff to do for uni (damn you dissertation and pretty much all the other modules I’m doing), I’ll only be able to watch Nadal’s matches. Oh well, I guess it is better than nothing, right?
