The day in the Masters of Rome is suspended due to the rain

The organization of the tournament was delaying the start of the matches throughout the day due to the inclement weather. Finally Nadal, Djokovic and Federer will debut on Thursday.


The intense rain that fell in the Foro Italico since the morning of this Wednesday caused the postponement of the second and third round matches in the tournament in Rome, in which the Serbian Novak Djokovic, the Spaniard Rafa Nadal or the Swiss were to make their debut Roger Federer. After several postponements, after 20:00 the organization decided to move all the games definitively to Thursday.

The tracks of the Foro Italico were to preserve the beaten earth and it was informed every half hour of the eventual start of the games, explained to EFE the organizers of the Roman tournament.

Federer was going to open the program of the central court at 11.00 local ( 9.00 GMT) against the Portuguese Joao Sousa, but the heavy rain, scheduled until the Italian night, kept the uncertainty. They also expected to know the schedule of their Spanish games Garbiñe Muguruza, who was going to play against the American Danielle Collins, and Carla Suárez, finalist in 2015, who was going to face the French Alizé Cornet.

Nadal, eight times champion in Rome, should be measured against Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the second inning of the center court. The rain already caused two interruptions on Tuesday in the match between the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, current champion, and the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka. After more than an hour of pause, Azarenka eliminated the queen of the Roman tournament.
