The public returns to the International Tennis of Italy, the ATP Masters 1000 in Rome underway at the Italian Forum. It was the moment that all Italian sport was waiting for: the reopening of the gates of a great event to the public of fans. It happened this morning at the Foro Italico for the day of the round of 16 of the tournament, opened at 10 on the Central Court by the challenge between the world no.1 Novak Djokovic and the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. A day that will see as the second meeting on the Grand Stand Arena the highly anticipated match between Matteo Berrettini, n.9 in the world, and Stefanos Tsitsipas, n.5. The people of tennis began to flock to one of the most beautiful sports theaters in the world, cap on their head, backpack on their shoulders. The plant has been divided into three zones that do not communicate with each other. You enter the Central Court and only that, or only the Grand Stand Arena or the third cluster, consisting of the Pietrangeli Stadium and secondary fields, where only numbered seats have been provided. Each area has its own separate entrances and exits and is equipped with related services, catering and toilets.All spectators must be equipped with an FFP2 mask (detail that has been explained since the purchase of the ticket that can be done online only) and sanitizing gels are distributed to ensure safety. The seats, with the spacing, for each session are more than 5000 (2,415 on the Central court, 1,493 on the Grand Stand Arena, 774 in the Pietrangeli Stadium and 590 on the Secondary Fields). 22 the evening program was divided between the central court and the Grand Stand Arena, each of which will host only one match (today Sonego-Thiem will be played from 7 pm in the Grand Stand Arena).
