Rome PHOTOS: Serena, Osaka upset in the second round, Halep leaves injured

Wednesday at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia was absolutely hectic with all 32 remaining singles players competing in the second round. Our photographer Jimmie48 got his feet tired walking at the venue of the WTA 1000 event, but the result is that we have a lot of exclusive photos from the busy tennis day in Rome.

Competing for the first time since the Australian Open, Serena Williams lost to 2020 Roland Garros semifinalist Nadia Podoroska 7-6(6) 7-5. This was one of many special occasions in Williams’ tennis résumé, as she was playing the 1000th match of her career.
