The main scoreboard of the International BNL of Italy 2022, Masters 1000 level tournament traditionally staged in Rome. Great expectations for the Azzurri protagonists at the Forum, with the hope that one of them will be able to reach the end of the event. There will be no host Matteo Berrettini, limited by an injury, so the spotlight will be on Jannik Sinner, certainly willing to do well by taking advantage of the push of the Italian public. Also absent Lorenzo Musetti, stopped by a muscle trouble in Madrid.

Attention also to Fabio Fognini and Lorenzo Sonego, among the most prominent local talents in recent times, with the first mentioned to now also represent an icon. Particular interest also for the performances of Novak Djokovic, world number one and recently returning from the forced stop period starting from the Australian swing; relevant reasons also to see Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Carlos Alcaraz at work, among the favorites to win the Internationals. Below are all the pairings of the main draw in Rome.
