Tournament set be have spectators says federation chief Binaghi

(ANSA) - Rome, June 17 - The 2020 Internazionali d'Italia tennis tournament will probably take place in September, Italian Tennis Federation President Angelo Binaghi told ANSA on Wednesday. The Italian Open, arguably the most prestigious tournament on the calender outside the Grand Slams, was meant to take place in May but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus emergency.
    "A few days ago the ATP asked us if we were available," Binaghi said.
    "Within hours they should make the calendar official and the Internazionali d'Italia should take place from September 21, with spectators too, thanks to the dialogue we will have about this tomorrow with the governmental institutions".
