With the start of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, in Rome, the short European clay-season also begins, which will culminate with the French Open 2020 in autumn. Lorenzo Musetti was the great surprise of day 2: the Italian stunned Stan Wawrinka, winning his first historic match in the ATP Tour.
But Andrey Rublev and Milos Raonic were also the stars of this Roman day. The Russian defeated Facundo Bagnis in two sets, while the Canadian won in two sets against Adrian Mannarino. Denis Shapovalov also reached the second round by beating Guido Pella in two sets.
