While all the players are preparing for the Monte-Carlo Masters, Andy Murray took the lead of our ranking thanks to his beautiful wedding... in a kilt. Behind, Caroline Wozniacki stepped onto the podium after her tennis match against Barack Obama while Serena Williams had a ball with Eva Longoria.
1- Andy Murray (+2).
He tied the knot. Andy Murray got married on Saturday with the beautiful Kim Sears.
And the Scot arrived at the ceremony... in a kilt.
A ceremony estimated at more than 1.4 million, no less. The Scot therefore proved that he isn't tight with money. For proof, the British tabloids offered him a sum equivalent to the cost of the wedding to cover it. But he refused and summed up his wedding in a tweet.
On other news, Murray also played snooker. And last week, he won against his teammates in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas.
2- Caroline Wozniacki (+2).
Presidential week for Caroline Wozniacki, who had the honour of being invited to the White House for the traditional Easter egg hunt.
The Dane even played a match with the president of the United States Barack Obama. Class, top class.
That same day, Wozniacki attended a university basketball game with the American soccer player JJ Watt.
A very busy week for Wozniacki who also was a guest of the American TV show The Dr. Oz Show.
3- Serena Williams (-2).
After the effort, deserved relaxation. After winning the Miami Open for the eighth time in her career, Serena Williams took some time off with her friend Eva Longoria.
This week, the American has also shown some original clothing, with this outfit for the least unexpected...
Williams is also starring in a new commercial for the Chase investment bank.
Even when she’s not playing, the world number 1 is on every screen.
4- Roger Federer (+8).
Absent in Miami, Roger Federer has been chomping at the bit to get back to the competition. And the least we can say is that the Swiss is delighted to get back in action in Monte Carlo…
…where he has been welcomed by Prince Albert in person, alongside their wifes.
But is Federer fan of Monte Carlo for tennis or for the city of Monaco? The former world No. 1 seems to have fallen under the spell of the Principality.
But Federer is not there for sightseeing. Before the start of the fortnight, he observed his competitors in training, Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka.
5- Janko Tipsarevic (NE).
533 days. Janko Tipsarevic had not tasted the competition on the ATP tour for 533 days and 17 months. The Serb has returned to the game this week in Houston. Winning comeback since he won in the first round against Brazilian Clezar at the end of the suspense (6-4, 3-6, 7-6).
Tipsarevic however lost in the second round against the Colombian Giraldo (7-6, 6-2). Not enough to discourage the man who could count on a very special support, that of his daughter.
Tipsarevic was also supported by Novak Djokovic. The Serb closely followed the return of his compatriot and friend.
6- Amelie Mauresmo (NE).
Amelie Mauresmo made two announcements this week. First, the team for the semi-finals of the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas against Czech Republic.
The FFT also posted an intimate moment in the dressing room of les Bleues before the quarter-final against Italy.
But this is not the announcement that made the most noise this week. Mauresmo announced that she was pregnant. Baby expected in August. Congratulations Amelie!
7- Novak Djokovic (-6).
A hat trick for Novak Djokovic? After winning successively the Indian Wells Masters and Miami, the Serb would like to perform in Monte Carlo, the first major event on clay. A tournament he won only once, in 2013 against Rafael Nadal.
This week, the motto was "payback" for Nole who took time to enjoy the United States. Time off yes, but with family.
The world number 1 also needed a few days to get over the jet lag when he returned to Europe.
8- Nicolas Mahut (+6).
Beautiful week for Nicolas Mahut who won the tournament in Saint-Brieuc by defeating the Japanese Sugita in the final (3-6, 7-6, 6-4) after successively eliminating the French Boutillier and Apulia. The Parisian however had a bad surprise when he awoke before his semi-final.
Otherwise, Mahut had a great idea to lose weight more easily before every competition.
9- Richard Gasquet (NE).
He will miss the Monte-Carlo Masters. Still suffering from a back injury, Richard Gasquet slowly returned to training. This week, he had a very special partner, French TV star Cyril Hanouna.
Gasquet also took advantage of his free time to attend the final of the League Cup between Bastia and PSG Saturday night at the Stade de France. Big PSG fan, he certainly enjoyed the victory of Ibrahimovic's teammates (4-0).
10- Madison Keys (NE).
She might only be 20 years old, but she is already making a lot of noise. Madison Keys, already 20th in the World has been impressive this week in Charleston, conceding just 14 games in her first four matches. In the quarterfinals, it was her compatriot Lauren Davis who suffered.
In the final however, she lost against Angelique Kerber, not without having pocketed the first set 6-2. Promising.
11- Rafael Nadal (-1).
He’s here at home. Eight-time winner of the Monte-Carlo Masters, Rafa Nadal knows the house. Yet the Spaniard doesn’t arrive in a position of favourite this year after a very difficult season so far. Dropped to the 5th place in the world, Rafa has then mainly tried to reassure this week in training.
Saturday, Nadal lost an exhibition game against Marin Cilic. But not to worry, the competition only starts on Monday…
12- Stan Wawrinka (NE).
He has to defend his title. Winner at Monaco last year against Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka has been training hard this week on Monaco’s clay. He successively played with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, no less.
The Swiss also played a mini-tennis match with Djokovic on top of the Monaco Yacht Club for the official sponsor of the tournament.
13- David Ferrer (-7).
This week, David Ferrer celebrated the birthday of his nephew with whom he blew three candles.
The Spaniard then resumed training on clay before traveling to Monaco. He also thanked his sparring partners Gonzalo Morell and Raul Brancaccio.
14- Maria Sharapova (+1).
Nostalgic week for Maria Sharapova. The Russian found a picture of her when she was a child, racquet in hand. And lovely braces.
We can say that Maria has made a lot of progress in front of the camera since.
15- Tomas Berdych (-10).
Tomas Berdych passed the 200 000 fans on Twitter this week. We shouldn't tell the Czech that Rafael Nadal has almost 8 million.
But Berdych hasn’t only tweeted this week. He also prepared the Monte-Carlo Masters. His goal: to find his bearings on clay.
