The Internazionali di Tennis Città di Vicenza is one of two €45,730 ATP Challenger Tour events being held during the first week of Roland Garros. The city of Vicenza with a population of about 115,000 inhabitants is located in northeastern Italy, in the Veneto region at the northern base of the Monte Berico, where it straddles the Bacchiglione River.

Andrea Arnaboldi headlined Tuesday’s first-round action by defeating fellow Italian and No. 3 seed Andreas Seppi 6-1, 7-6(5). The 34-year-old lefty, currently ranked World No. 221, broke Seppi’s serve four times to prevail after one hour and 36 minutes.

Arnaboldi will next take on his in-form compatriot Francesco Maestrelli, who reached his first Challenger final in Francavilla al Mare last week. The 19-year-old Pisa native continued his good run of form with a 6-4, 6-2 win over French qualifier Kenny de Schepper 6-4, 6-2 after one hour and 23 minutes.

In other action, top seed Gianluca Mager opened his title bid with a 6-3, 7-6(3) victory over Russian lucky loser Yan Bondarevskiy in one hour and 40 minutes and will play fellow Italian Riccardo Bonadio in the second round.
