It takes place at the Foro Italico tennis park, within sight of the historic Olympic Stadium. The surface chosen for the event is clay, providing somewhat slower, but more exciting action.
In recent years, Spain has been the country to beat at this prestigious event. Spanish tennis stars have dominated the tennis court, with the rest of the world battling to unseat them. The intense competition lasts nine gruelling days. It features men’s singles, women’s singles and doubles play.
Some tennis enthusiasts make the Rome Open part of a larger Gland Slam Tennis Tour. The Rome Open can be the culminating trip on a tour of tennis hotspots and events.

Flights and hotels could get booked up quickly in anticipation of the event. Luckily, there is a wealth of cultural and historic sites to enjoy while you wait for the tournament to begin.
