Internazionali d’Italia: Lorenzo Sonego wins, then rain interrupts everything

Lorenzo Sonego faster than the rain: the Turinese player manages to victoriously end his second-round match at the Internazionali d’Italia just as heavy rain was pouring down on the Foro Italico in Rome, forcing the interruption or cancellation of the remaining matches scheduled for today, including the derby between Lorenzo Musetti and Matteo Arnaldi and the match between Marco Cecchinato and Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, as well as those of Daniil Medvedev against Emil Ruusuvuori and Alexander Zverev against David Goffin.

Sonego in an hour and 45 minutes of play beat Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka 7-5 6-3, who is 16 places ahead of him in the rankings, 32 versus 48. Now the Turin player in the third round will most likely have to face Stefanos Tsitsipas: in fact, the Greek’s match was interrupted when he was ahead 6-3 4-3 and serving against Portugal’s Nuno Borges.
