The Monte-Carlo Masters marks the start of the clay court season even though the King is out of action with a rib injury. Sad for the Spaniard, but very welcome news for the rest of the field. Rafa has won the Monte-Carlo Masters a record 11 times, so it's nice of him to give somebody else a shot.
Speaking of which, Novak has only triumphed at the MCCC event twice, most recently in 2015. Stefanos Tsitsipas is back to defend his crown, as is the man he beat in last year's final, Andrey Rublev.
Some of the other major names in the field include top 10 starlets Casper Ruud, Felix Auger Aliassime and Alexander Zverev, as well as Indian Wells champion Taylor Fritz and the teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz, who became the youngest ever Miami Open men's winner earlier this month.
Read on for all the ways of how to watch a 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters live stream from wherever you are in the world.
How to watch Monte-Carlo Masters: live stream tennis in the UK
Amazon has the rights to broadcast the Monte-Carlo Masters in the UK. Amazon Prime Video members can live stream all the action at no additional cost.
Play typically gets underway at 10am BST, extending into the afternoons and evenings, though the final on Sunday, April 17, starts at 1.30pm.
You can live stream the tennis from your phone or tablet or any smart device with the Amazon Prime Video app.
Amazon Prime membership costs £79 per year or £7.99 per month, which can be cancelled at any time. The subscription will get you access to Amazon's library of TV shows and films as well as unlimited one-day delivery on Amazon orders from the UK.
New users can sign up for a FREE 30-day Amazon Prime trial with full access to live sports coverage, as well as free one-day delivery on purchases from Amazon's online store during that time.
Away from the UK but still want to watch the tennis on your Prime account? Your best option is to download and install a VPN and then log in to a UK IP address.
Watch a Monte-Carlo Masters live stream from outside your country
For broadcast and streaming details in more tennis-mad countries like the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, just scroll down the page - everything you need to know is there, including details of who is showing the tennis.
But if you try to watch your domestic coverage from anywhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem - geo-blocking. That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for sports fans all over the world.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home.
