Monte Carlo: When Felix Met Toni


The clay season begins in earnest this week with tournaments contested in Cagliari, Marbella, and Charleston kicking off matters, but the big news is about coaching. Toni Nadal, uncle of that guy ‘Rafa’, is linking up with Felix Auger Aliassime for the foreseeable future beginning in Monte Carlo. Simon and Devang talk about what this partnership could mean for Felix, Toni, and Rafa going forward. Also, the French Open is ‘postponed’ for an extra week amid alarming numbers in France and Carlos Alcaraz joins Sinner and Musetti as we imagine what the tours will look like in 2026.
