The Shanghai Masters 1000 arena will set the stage for a busy day of tennis with a packed schedule of second-round matches, including those of three Italian tennis players, Matteo Arnaldi, Lorenzo Sonego and Jannik Sinner, fresh from his triumph Wednesday in Beijing.

Rain considerably marked the day for organizers, whose plan to start matches at 6:30 a.m. Italian time è was disrupted. Only on the Central Court, equipped with retractable cover, è managed to start the match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Rinky Hijikata. Unfortunately, no Italians were scheduled to participate on this court.

Show Court 3 and 4 side courts will see our tennis players take the court. Always rain permitting. Sonego will faceò Frances Tiafoe as the second match after Paul-Ofner, while Sinner will challengeà Marcos Giron as the third match. Arnaldi, on the other hand, played against Jan-Lennard Struff as the first match on court 4, which was unfortunately interrupted after only five games due to rain.

The weather forecast for the day is uncertain, with the possibility of rain in three to four hours. A picture that requires great care and careful management by the organizers.
