Denis Shapovalov, the fifteenth seed, is the first #NextGenATP player to take the court this week when he faces Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany. The Canadian saved a match point to defeat Struff in their lone FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting last October in Tokyo. Shapovalov has enjoyed success on clay before by reaching the semi-finals last year at the Mutua Madrid Open.

Tenth seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia opens up play on Court Rainier III when he takes on Joao Sousa of Portugal. The pair split both of their FedEx ATP Head2Head battles last year, but Sousa won their only clay-court match on home soil in Estoril. Medvedev has been in fine form in recent months, having advanced to at least the quarter-finals in seven of his past 13 ATP Tour events.

Fabio Fognini, the thirteenth seed, will have a battle of experience against youth when he meets Russian qualifier Andrey Rublev. The Italian is making his 11th straight appearance in Monte-Carlo and reached the semi-finals here in 2013. Fognini leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head with Rublev 3-1, but the Russian picked up his lone victory on red clay two years ago in Umag.

A bevy of high-profile doubles teams will also be in action on Monday. Top seeds Pierre-Hugues Herbert / Nicholas Mahut, Grigor Dimitrov / Stan Wawrinka, Alexander Zverev / Mischa Zverev, and Novak Djokovic / Marko Djokovic will all compete in first-round matches.
