One of the highlights during the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters is the annual Player Revue, when stars of the ATP Tour set aside their inhibitions to entertain their friends, family and fellow players in a series of sketches, poking good-humoured fun at life on tour and showing off their singing and dancing talents.
Murray had been the subject of the first sketch of the evening, in which fellow doubles stars Rojer and Horia Tecau imagined how life may have changed in the Murray household with Jamie standing atop the FedEx ATP Doubles Rankings. Jamie’s mom, Judy Murray, then joined the cast on stage.
“I never get to do this anywhere else,” said Tecau. “This is my shot to Hollywood, so I’m going to take it and I’m going to milk the show as much as I can. Every year, I can’t wait to be here and see the results of the show.”
Soares hosted another memorable off-court moment in 2018 at this ATP Masters 1000 tournament. In this “James Bond-inspired challenge”, Milos Raonic, Borna Coric and Feliciano Lopez attempted to hit a target on top of a speedboat in the Monte-Carlo Bay for Unbelievable Tennis: The Speedboat Shot.
Lopez emerged as the winner on the 11th try. “You get to swim and pick up all the balls,” joked Raonic regarding the prize.
