When is the 2020 Rome Masters?

The Rome Masters, which is also known as the Internazionali BNL d’Italia and the Italian Open, is usually played in early May, two weeks before the French Open.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus on the tennis calendar, however, the 2020 Rome Masters has been moved to September where it forms an important part of a compressed European clay-court schedule. The tournament was moved once more, to take the place of the Madrid Masters after that event was cancelled.

The ATP announced their new provisional calendar for the remainder of 2020 on Friday 14 August, confirming that the 2020 Rome Masters will take place from 14-21 September.

ATP Rome Masters Players 2020

A packed men’s field will do battle for the title at the 2020 Rome Masters from 14-21 September, led by world no. 1 and 2 Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

Rafael Nadal

Not even a global pandemic can stop Nadal from pursuing an incredible thirteenth singles title at the French Open, and the ‘King of Clay’ will also be looking to make it ten titles at the Rome Masters,

Nadal did not triumph at the Foro Italico for four years between 2013-17, but has won back-to-back titles in 2018-19, defeating Alexander Zverev and Novak Djokovic in respective three-set finals.

The Rome Masters will be Nadal’s first tournament since winning Acapulco in February – how will he fare after being out of competition for six months?

Novak Djokovic

Second only to his great rival Nadal in Rome titles won, Djokovic has lifted the trophy at the Foro Italico four times between 2008 and 2015, and reached the final an additional five times, including three of the past four years.

Djokovic began 2020 by winning his eighth Australian Open title and had a perfect 18-0 record before the shutdown. He stretched that to 26-0 when he returned to competition to win the Western & Southern Open and reached the fourth round of the US Open, but suffered a shock default when he accidentally struck a linesperson with a ball. Will Djokovic rebound by recapturing the Rome Masters title?

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Twice a Masters 1000 Series finalist, including on clay in Madrid in 2019 where he beat Nadal, Tsitsipas ended his 2019 season by winning the Nitto ATP Finals and continues to establish himself as one of the best young players in the game.

The 21-year-old Greek reached the semifinals of the Rome Masters in 2019 before Nadal ended his campaign, and comes into Rome fresh from a semifinal run at the Western & Southern Open and a painful US Open loss to Borna Coric, when he was unable to convert six match points.

Matteo Berrettini

The focus of home hopes will be big-serving Berrettini, who broke into the top 10 after a sensational 2019 season saw him reach the semifinals of the US Open and the Shanghai Masters as well as winning titles on grass and clay.

The Italian knocked out fourth seed Alexander Zverev on his way to the last 16 in Rome in 2019. After reaching the fourth round of the US Open, Berrettini will be keen to show his best tennis to his home crowd.

About the Rome Masters

The Rome Masters is one of nine Masters 1000 Series events on the ATP Tour calendar, and the third to be played on European clay after the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters and the Madrid Masters.

Also known as the Internazionali BNL d’Italia and the Italian Open, the Rome Masters is usually played in early May immediately after the Madrid Masters, and two weeks before the French Open in Paris.

This has been changed in 2020 due to the global health crisis, and the Rome Masters will be played in the autumn from 14-21 September before returning to its regular calendar slot in 2021.

Featuring a 56-player singles draw and offering 1,000 ranking points to the winner, the Rome Masters is played in picturesque surroundings at the iconic, Mussolini-built Foro Italico. This reflects the tournament’s 1930s roots, although it was played in Milan from its inception in 1930-4 before first moving to Rome and the Foro Italico in 1935. Throughout the tournament’s history, it has also been played in Turin, and the women’s event has also been played in Perugia and Taranto during the 1980s before moving back to Rome.

Now a Masters 1000 Series for the men and a Premier-5 tournament for the women, the Rome Masters continues to be a highlight of the European clay-court season as well as a key battleground ahead of the French Open.

For the first 70 years of its existence, the Italian Open saw many tennis greats lifting the trophy including Bill Tilden, Rod Laver, Ilie Nastase, Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl and Gustavo Kuerten. But it has never seen a champion like Rafael Nadal. The young man who would soon be known as the ‘King of Clay’ triumphed in Rome for the first time in 2005, defeating Guillermo Coria in the final, and went on to win eight more titles for a record title of nine, with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic among opponents he has defeated in finals.

Since Nadal’s first triumph in 2005, in fact, only two men other than the Spanish lefty and his great rival Djokovic have managed to break through to win the Rome Masters: Andy Murray, who became the Rome Master’s first British winner since 1931 when he stunned Djokovic in straight sets in the 2016 final, and Alexander Zverev, the German youngster who cemented his status as one of the brightest stars of tennis’s next generation when he defeated Djokovic in the 2017 final. Status quo was restored in 2019, however, when Nadal and Djokovic faced off in the final once more, the nine-time champion defeating the four-time one in three sets. The Rome Masters is one of the few prestigious tennis titles which Roger Federer has never won.

Five Italian men have lifted the trophy at what is now the Rome Masters, most notably the great Niccolo Pietrangeli in 1957 and again in 1961; one of the tournament’s show courts is named after Pietrangeli. The most recent homegrown winner was Adriano Pannatta in 1976.
