Forecasts are saying rain, so with there being no roofs in Rome this week could be lame.
Djokovic is back on the men's side, Serena and Garbine on the women's side. Men's tournament already started today with 4 main draw matches.

Skipping the clay is a good choice. Him still feeling discomfort is really concerning. Wimbledon should probably be his last hurrah (especially with crowds allowed back), but he doesn't seem to be there mentally. Can have a R2 exit in singles and make the latter stages in mixed.


The general vibe of the information is that Murray's totally finished and will retire soon

When it fact it was quite smart and revived her career at the (lower) WTA level.
