STARNBERG, May 23, 2021

There is no place like home for Lorenzo Sonego. After making some Italian tennis history in Cagliari and winning hearts in Rome, the World No. 28 will make his debut at the Emilia-Romagna Open looking to keep the momentum going on home soil.

Sonego is the top seed at the ATP 250 event in Parma, one of five ATP Tour events being staged in Italy this year. He will be seeking his third tour-level title, and leads a strong field of home favourites including #NextGenATP Lorenzo Musetti.

Seeded heavyweights include Benoit Paire, Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Jan-Lennard Struff, while #NextGenATP Sebastian Korda and Frances Tiafoe will also feature.

Djokovic leads the field at the Belgrade Open

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will hit the court at his namesake tennis centre in Serbia seeking his 83rd tour-level title as he leads the way at the Belgrade Open.

Top seed Djokovic will start against either Egor Gerasimov or a qualifier as he seeks a Serbian hat-trick, having won two titles in Belgrade during the tournament’s previous four-year run (2009, 2011).

World No. 14 Gael Monfils is the second seed, while Nikoloz Basilashvili, Adrian Mannarino and Dusan Lajovic will also feature at the ATP 250 event.
