The WTA Rome 2022 will start on May 8 and continue till May 15 at the Foro Italico sports complex. You will know when, where, and how to watch the tournament here.
The remainder of the first-round matchups will be completed on Tuesday, Day 2, at the WTA 1000 level Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome. Another busy day is on the schedule across the historic grounds of the Foro Italico.
Let’s look at some of Tuesday’s matchups, including an exciting clash between the unpredictable Sloane Stephens and an in-form Ekaterina Alexandrova. Who will advance to the second round?
Amanda Anisimova has made a solid start to the clay-court swing. The former Roland Garros semifinalist has reminded the tour of her threat on the dirt with a run to the semifinals in Charleston and a quarterfinal showing in Madrid.
Conversely, Tereza Martincova has yet to win a main draw match on the clay this season but managed to navigate her way through qualifying in Rome. An Anisimova victory is the obvious choice here; the American is far better to form and far more talented.
It’s a quick turnaround for Jessica Pegula. After her career-best run to the final in Madrid, the American gets a couple of days’ rest. It will be interesting to see if Pegula can carry her Madrid form into Rome; it won’t be easy with little time to adjust to the vastly different conditions and with fatigue potentially setting in.
First up for Pegula is a familiar opponent in the form of Ludmilla Samsonova. Samsonova emerged victorious in the most recent meeting between the pair, a 6-4 3-6 6-3 victory at Wimbledon last year. Samsonova was red-hot heading into that match on a good surface for her, the script is flipped heading into this match, and I expect the result to reverse.
