The Monte Carlo Masters is famous for many things: beautiful views, clay-court drama and top-class tennis. It's also known for hits ritzy and fairly secretive player party, where players get dressed up for night of glamour and laughs. The Monte Carlo player party always features the players doing musical sketches for each other. One time, Novak Djokovic did the Thriller dance and another time, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga appeared in drag; last year the Harlem Shake broke out on stage.

Unfortunately details about this year's show have been few and far between, which only piques our interest more. For all we know, Roger Federer dressed up like Ellen Degeneres and recreated that famous Oscar selfie. Maybe Djokovic and Rafael Nadal teamed up for an incoherent True Detective parody. Maybe Fabio Fognini did his best Fabio Fognini impression. What if we never know?

While we wait patiently for the details of what happened behind closed doors, take a look at the players arriving in all sorts of blazers and denim below.
