The all-American match-up between Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sloane Stephens is the pick of the first round qualifying ties as the Internazionali BNL d’Italia begins in earnest on Saturday.

The pair kick off the start of this year’s proceedings on the Supertennis Arena and are followed by an intriguing clash between Carla Suarez Navarro, the Spaniard, and Gisela Dulko, the Argentine who has reached the quarter-finals of the French Open in each of the last two years.

Home wildcard Nastassja Burnett takes on Swede Johanna Larsson, third up on Court 2.

In the men’s qualifying, German Philipp Petzschner takes on big-serving Croat Ivo Karlovic on Court 1. 

Players will need to win two qualifying matches to qualify for the main draw, which incidentally takes places at midday local time on Saturday.
