22:00 CET - Daniil Medvedev (28) has come through a big challenge from Hamad Medjedovic (20) to book his place in the last 16 in Rome, winning 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 7-5. That brings an end the men's side of the tennis today!

21:50 CET - Sebastian Baez (19) may have not had the best clay season to date but it was only a matter of time before the talented teenager found his feet on clay.

19:45 CET - Nicolas Jarry (28) has fought off a tough challenge from Stefano Napolitano (29) to secure his spot in the last 16 of the Italian Open. Jarry came out on top in three sets 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.

17:09 CET - It wasn't a match full of quality, but Coco Gauff (20) had enough to beat Paula Badosa (26) 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 and move into the next round in Rome.

16:57 CET - World number one Iga Swiatek (22) didn't have it all her own way, but she managed to find some brilliant tennis in key moments to battle past Angelique Kerber (36) 7-5, 6-3. That's a ninth consecutive win for the Pole who looks to be hitting top form just in time for the French Open.
