Italian Open

 The Rome Masters is an annual tennis tournament held in Rome, Italy. It is the most prestigious red clay tennis tournament in the world after the French Open, with the men's competition being an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event on the Association of Tennis Professionals tour, and the women's competition being a Premier 5 event on the Women's Tennis Association tour. The two events were combined in 2011. The tournament is played on clay courts, currently during the second week of May. The event was previously known as the Italian Championships and Rome Masters and adopted its present name in 2002. Rafael Nadal has won the title a record seven times.
