Italian Open Live Streaming
Watching the Italian Open used to be difficult for fans in the UK and until recently needed an expensive subscription to a Pay TV channel but now thanks to our live streaming partners and their live streaming console you can watch each and every match from the Italian Open live.
The Italian Open, or Internazionali BNL d’Italia as it is known for sponsorship reasons, is a clay court tennis tournament played at the Foro Italico sports complex in the Italian capital city of Rome with is often more commonly known as the Rome Masters.
Despite been able to attract many top players and acting as great preparation for the upcoming French Open, the Italian Open is perhaps over looked by the media and fans in the UK.
The tournament is thought by many to be the leading clay court tournament outside of the French Open and with the quality of players it attracts, it would be hard to argue.
Rafa Nadal is the most successful player in the history of the tournament and in recent times Novak Djokovic has enjoyed numerous successes in Rome.
The Italian Open features both the men’s ATP Tour, where it holds the Masters 1000 ranking, and it also hosts the WTA women’s tour.
The tournament, know known as the ATP Rome, was first established in 1930, when the American star Bill Tilden won the initial men’s event before George Patrick Hughes of Great Britain one the following year. It too k4 years for the first ever Italian winner when Emanuele Sartorio defeated Andre Martin-Legeay of France in 1934.
Jaroslav Drobny, the Czech born, British citizen who played under the Egyptian flag dominated the tournament in the early 1950’s before it was the turn of Australian stars to dominate for the rest of the 50’s and 60’s with Lew Hoad, Mervyn Rose, the iconic Rod Laver, Marty Mulligan, Tom Roche and John Newcombe all winning the event on one or more occasions.
The 1970’s saw the rise of Europeans once more before those from North America and South America became the dominant force until the mid-1980’s from where it has been Europeans that have enjoyed continual dominance of the title.
As with so many clay court tournament, the most dominant player in the events history has been Spain’s Rafael Nadal.
The women’s side of the draw, know known as the WTA Rome, was inaugurated in the same year as the men’s event first started, with Lili Alvarez of Spain winning the first tournament.
Early Home Success
Home favourite Lucia Valerio won the 2nd event before going on to lose 3 of the next 4 finals.
The 1950’s saw British and American stars dominate the event with Susan Partridge, Patricia Ward, Shirley Bloomer and Christine Truman all winning for British tennis.
The 1960, 70’s and early 80’s saw American and Australian stars dominated the title picture at the Italian Open.
From 1988 to 1996 Gabriela Sabatini of Argentina and Conchita Martinez won 8 out of 9 tournaments between them with only Monica Seles able to break up their hold on the trophy.
From their on in, the title has been shared around much more but aside from Serena Williams of the United States, it has been European stars that have dominated things, with Britain’s own Johanna Konta coming close in a loss to Karolina Pliskova in the 2019 WTA Rome final.
Back To Back Losses
After that final, the Czech star lost back to back losses against Simona Halep and Iga Swiatek, who in 2021 became the first ever Polish winner.
The 2022 edition saw Novak Djokovic take on and defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final to pick up the title whilst the women’s side of the draw saw Iga Swiatek of Poland pick up the title by defeating Ons Jabeur of Tunisia in the final.
