The 2023 Internazionali BNL d'Italia (Italian Open) will be held between May 10th and May 21st, and it is the last Masters 1000 tournament and penultimate tournament before the French Open.
This year, the tournament in Rome will feature a 96-player draw for the first time, and it will last for one and a half weeks. On the men's side, Novak Djokovic will return to the court after missing Madrid due to injury. The big absentee is Rafael Nadal, who has won the Italian trophy 10 times and remains uncertain about his return to the court shortly before the start of the French Open.
Carlos Alcaraz is also among the favorites, as he looks to dethrone 'Nole' as world No. 1, which would happen if Djokovic wins the trophy. Other top players include Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev and Holger Rune, along with the return of local player Jannik Sinner, who has been out with an injury since the Barcelona Open.
The WTA will feature the world's best tennis players, with the exception of the suspended Simona Halep and Alja Tomljanovic due to injury. The tournament is led by favorites Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka, who could be joined by Jessica Pegula, Coco Gauff, and Elena Rybakina.
