From May 7 to 15, international tennis greats will battle it out at Rome's Foro Italico, which will host the 2011 Internazionali BNL d'Italia, one of the three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 contested on clay. The ‘combined event' featuring the top 43 men and 32 of the top 35 women tennis players in ATP and WTA tennis will have competitors playing side by side on the Foro's 11 courts, the first time this has happened in 33 years. This year's tournament is a joint venture between the Italian Tennis Federation and Coni Servizi SpA, with BNL-BNP PARIBAS as title sponsor for the fifth consecutive year.
