The 2024 Italian Open is almost over, following a bumpy few weeks that saw multiple injury-related upsets plague the ATP tour. Below, we'll explain everything you need to know about the 2024 tournament, including where to watch the Italian Open and when the final matches air.

The tournament commenced nearly two weeks ago following a spate of injuries on the ATP tour, including top players Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner, and Daniil Medvedev. Alcaraz and Sinner sat out the Italian Open, but Medvedev (who won the 2023 competition) had been able to participate. He, along with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, were eliminated earlier in the competition. Elena Rybakina, last year's women's victor, dropped out of the competition early due to illness, and Coco Gauff fell again to Europe's elite.

As for the women's final, we saw world number 1, Iga Swiatek, once again defeat Aryna Sabalenka on Saturday, and we wouldn't bet against a rematch at Roland Garros soon. The men's final is up next on Sunday where we'll help you get set up for a Zverev vs. Jarry live stream. So, keep reading to learn how to watch the Italian Open final from anywhere in the world.

How to watch the Italian Open from anywhere

If you won't be in the US during any of the must-see matches, you can keep up with your subscriptions via VPN. Short for virtual private networks, VPNs are easy ways to alter your device's location so that you can access websites and apps that might vary in availability on a regional basis. Plus, they're strong ways to boost your online privacy. This recommendation will be best for Americans who are traveling right now and looking to access their existing subscriptions since the services we outlined today require US forms of payment.

If you want to try out a VPN, our go-to recommendation is ExpressVPN. In addition to being easy to learn, it offers a hassle-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Check out our ExpressVPN review to learn more and keep reading to see how to use a VPN.
