In a social media post earlier today, Roger Federer confirmed his participation in Rome.
“So I just finished speaking to the team. And I’m happy to say I’m coming back to Rome to play in Italy. Can’t wait, so exciting, it’s been too long.”
A 4-time Rome finalist, he’s never won the title there. The last time he played was a 2016 loss to Dominic Thiem.
Seeded third, Federer will face either Tiafoe/Sousa, then possibly Coric in the third round, Tsitsipas in the quarters and Nadal in the semifinals.
Kevin Anderson is the only player in the Top 20 not playing.
