Monday/ tennis in Roma 🎾

The Italian Open tennis tournament in the Eternal City has started, at the beautiful Foro Italico sports complex.
The tournament was first held in Milan in 1930 as the Italian International Championships, and was moved to the Foro Italico a few years later, in 1935.

The Nicola Pietrangeli court is surrounded by green lawns and 18 large statues. It is named after Italy’s greatest tennis champion, Nicola Pietrangeli (age 88). The main stadium with its steel structure is in the distance.
