Sonego with Alcaraz, but the rain stops everything.  It is also up to Berrettini and Fognini

Game suspended in Cincinnati with the Turin player under a break against the Spaniard. Then Matteo with Ramos and in the night Fabio against Pella. Giorgi is back, finds Pegula

Lorenzo Sonego opened the day of the Italians at the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati by taking the field against the Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz, already at number 55 in the ranking, but the rain again stopped the game on all fields. It would be, weather permitting, the day of his debut also for Matteo Berrettini, returning to the circuit after the injury to the vast media that prevented him from participating in the Tokyo Games. The 25-year-old Roman, number 8 in the ranking and finalist at Wimbledon this year, finds Albert Ramos Vinolas, # 49, on the other side of the net, who yesterday passed Taylor Fritz. Finally Fognini, after having imposed himself on the Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili, n.40 in the world on Monday, is playing a place in the second round with the Argentine Guido Pella, n.98 in the ranking. The 34-year-old from Arma di Taggia is 4-2 ahead of the previous matches. Jannik Sinner, on the other hand, will play the second round tomorrow against the winner between John Isner and Cameron Norrie.

Giorgi returns

Camila Giorgi, after the most important success of her career in the WTA 1000 in Montreal, is ready to return to the Ohio hard court where she faces Jessica Pegula tonight. The two met last week in Montreal with the success of Camila in three sets: “But this time – said Giorgi, now number 34 in the world -, I hope to hurry up faster”.
