which channel to follow the Rome tournament live?

Spring, the flowers, the sun, the temperatures that demand idleness … Without a doubt, the time has come to enjoy clay tennis. Some fear the end-of-course deadlines, and even before Roland-Garros, they are already struggling to meet their review schedule. ATP specialists, on the other hand, remain focused, keep the Paris Grand Slam in the spotlight and continue their preparation to be perfectly prepared for their first match at Porte d’Auteuil. After Monte Carlo and the new victory of the Greek Stéfanos Tsitsipás, the Barcelona and Madrid tournaments, the players continue their season on clay in Italy, on the occasion of the Masters 1000 in Rome. Winner against Novak Djokovic last year, can Rafael Nadal retain the title?

Rome awaits its gladiators

Ten-time winner of the test, ocher ogre Rafael Nadal puts his last title at stake, but this year he is in an unusual and delicate situation. The Mallorcan started the year very well, but injured his ribs in Indian Wells at the end of March. At the end of a final that he could not play 100%, he admitted for the first time in his career to suffer physically. After several weeks off, Nadal only returned to Madrid last week and lost in the quarterfinals. The Spaniard knows this, the competition promises to be very difficult once again in Rome with the presence of the best of the ATP circuit. The world number 1, Novak Djokovic, intends to defend his rank and hang this competition for the sixth time in his record. Stefano Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Denis Shapovalov, Casper Ruud, not counting the locals on stage, the Italians Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Musetti … Many of them want to dethrone Emperor Christmas.

Carlos Alcaraz absent from Rome

Winner of the fast surface of the Miami Masters 1000 in early April, Carlos Alcaraz once again impressed on the clay tracks of Madrid. Last week, before lifting the trophy, he fired Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev. Instead of taking advantage of his reserves and risking a serious injury, the young Spaniard prefers to focus on recovery and focus on the next Roland-Garros (May 22 – June 5). Needless to say, he played his last undercover, with an infected bottle. Despite his meteoric rise in the ATP rankings (this Monday he is 6th in the world), his entourage considers it necessary to take a break before a Paris Grand Slam of which he is increasingly asserting himself as one of the main contenders. .

The French broke record after record!

Two weeks after the start of Roland-Garros, the tricolors and their fans are sad. Gael Monfils withdrew from Rome due to foot problems. A physical problem that prevented him during his 18th consecutive defeat (a record!) Against Novak Djokovic, in the second round in Madrid. All eliminated in the first round of the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo, a first for 45 years, the situation does not improve with the weeks. Adrian Mannarino, Ugo Humbert, Benoît Paire and Benoît Paire had to be helped off the pitch as an injury meant they were unable to finish the game. As a result, no blue is present in the Italian capital: a first in Rome since 1971!
