It is one of the sporting events that has always borne the name of the Principality worldwide attracting spectators and sports Media from all over the world to follow the talented players as they search for a match point. The Monte-Carlo Masters is one of the oldest tennis tournaments, second in seniority only to Wimbledon. The Monte-Carlo Tennis tournament stemmed from a British style amateur challenge held on the courts behind the popular Hôtel de Paris, in 1897. Since then, its prestige has increased exponentially, changing locations and surviving World Wars I and II with great support from the Princely Family and Société des Bains de Mer. In 1928, the turning point was the creation of the Monte-Carlo Country Club and the terraced red clay tennis courts framed in that spectacular natural setting between rocks and sea.
