The Rome Master 1000 will take place from May 3 – 16, 2021

The BNL International Tennis Tournament is the most prestigious red clay tennis tournament in the world after the French Open. After suspending the tournament back in May due to the covid-19 pandemic, and holding the 77th edition on an exceptional basis in September, the event is finally back with its 78th edition this May.

The BNL International Tennis Tournament sees the top names in tennis coming to duke it out on the clay courts of Foro Italico, a historical stadium built for the Olympic Games of 1960.  This is one of the best events in Rome and this fabulous competition combines men and women’s tournaments, giving us a week of intense tennis under the glorious sunshine of September.

You’ll be able to admire 19 of the top 20 best tennis players in the world (Federer will not be participating) including Nadal, Djokovic, Thiem, Medvedev, Tsitsipas, and many more top players, including applauding the female protagonists such as Serena Williams, Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskov, who won the last edition.

The tournament is one of the three ATP Masters 1000 events contested on clay, but the event is usually more than just tennis; it is a total entertainment experience. High fashion, fine food, fabulous shopping and celebrity musical performances have made the tournament one of the most glamorous stops on the ATP Tour. Rafael Nadal has won a record eight titles in Rome.
