The world’s best head to Rome for the final clay-court ATP Masters 1000 action of the season at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia.

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev are the top two seeds at the Foro Italico, where the Serbian is chasing his seventh title. Medvedev aims to defend the crown he won in 2023. Djokovic will play his second clay event of the year.

Rafael Nadal is also in the field at an event where he is a record 10-time champion. The Spanish superstar will make his final appearance in Rome, where he holds a 69-8 record. Nadal, who begins his campaign against a qualifier, could play Hubert Hurkacz in the second round, with Medvedev a potential quarterfinal opponent.

Third seed and 2017 champion Alexander Zverev, Mutua Madrid Open titlist Andrey Rublev and Monte-Carlo winner Stefanos Tsitsipas are among the other Top 10 stars chasing glory on the Italian clay.
