Struff, Khachanov Join In Monte-Carlo Player Revue
Sergiy Stakhovsky portrayed ‘The Great Showman’ in a successful annual Player Revue on Wednesday night at the 112th edition of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.
Stakhovsky starred in an entertaining ballerina ball dancing sketch with Daniil Medvedev and he also took part in sketches about on-court coaching with Bruno Soares, in addition to a skit on the Borg vs McEnroe film with David Ekerot and Thomas Johansson's son, Lukas.
Jan-Lennard Struff and Karen Khachanov, who competed in third-round play at the Monte-Carlo Country Club on Thursday, were also brought up to the stage for a ‘Guess What?’ game that was hosted by Robert Farah. Pierre-Hugues Herbert started the show as Ed Sheeran, singing two worldwide hits with Federica Sartori.
There were also segments on inside the locker room (featuring Rajeev Ram, Mate Pavic, Farah and Soares), super coaches (with Martin Stepanek, Oliver Marach, Ekerot, Farah and Pavic) and mess on practice courts (with Romain Arneodo, Hugo Nys, Stepanek and Ekerot).
Host Kyle Edmund was joined on stage by co-host Cristina Cimino at the Monte-Carlo Bay event, organised by Anna Galoppo and the ATP’s Cecilia Ghe, with the help of Ekerot.
