World No.1 and two-time defending champion Iga Swiatek will lead the world-class field, featuring all the Top 10 players at the 80th edition of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia from 8-21 May, the first with a 96-player main draw.
Rome remains a special place for Swiatek, who dismissed Karolina Pliskova in the 2021 title-match with an unprecedented double bagel. After that triumph, she made her Top 10 debut.
The quality of the event is underlined by the extremely high cut off for the main draw. The lowest-ranked player to be admitted directly into the main draw is 70, while seven players used their protected rankings to be able to play in Rome: Sofia Kenin, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Elina Svitolina, Marketa Vondrousova, Nadia Podoroska, Barbora Strycova and Patricia Maria Tig.
