Internazionali d’Italia, one of the greatest tennis event in the world, will be taking place in Rome from May 9 to 17, 2015. Backdrop to this International event will traditonally be the Foro Italico, not far from the Stadio Olimpico.

The finalists for the major event in May will be chosen among any tennis players regularly subscribed to the Italian Federation of Tennis, with no restrictions related to rank position or level: anyone playing and winning these qualification tournaments will be admitted to the Internazionali d’Italia. For all the others there will be anyways a prestigious consolation prize: a seat on the bleachers of Foro Italico in May.
