Another FedDay at the Monte-Carlo Country Club

Hi my fellow PeRFect Tennis readers, Did anyone spot me on TV/stream looking particularly gorgeous for our Fed? Or 90 year-old Sophie? Yes, I was there to witness his disappointing loss to Monfils unfortunately. I know Monte-Carlo Masters is not everyone’s liking especially for Fedfans. Monaco has never been on my bucket list as a place to visit, either. I’d …
