Roberta Vinci, Flavia Pennetta and Jelena Jankovic headed to the official draw ceremony Saturday.
The players headed over to the Internazionali BNL d'Italia draw ceremony on the top of a tour bus.
At the draw, the WTA stars were joined by ATP World Tour players Andreas Seppi and Fabio Fognini.
Though she was the only one of the five not from the home country, Jankovic had a claim to fame...
Jankovic was the only former champion at the draw, winning in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008.
