Paris: Former world number one Roger Federer is the only member of the `big four` of tennis who has failed to enter next month`s Monte Carlo Masters.
However, tournament director Zeljko Franulovic said on Thursday that the Swiss maestro could still make a late decision to play in the April 15-22 event.
Federer, now third in the rankings, clinched his sixth ATP World Tour crown in eight tournaments at last week`s Indian Wells event in California.
World number two Rafa Nadal will be chasing his eighth Monte Carlo Masters title in a row and is joined in the lineup by top-ranked Novak Djokovic and number four Andy Murray.
