On Tuesday, the tournament's top seed and defending champion - Sara Errani - had a meet and greet.
The Italian No.1, and World No.6, did interviews, met fans and of course, signed autographs.
Errani has gone as high as No.5 in the world, just the second Italian to do so in WTA history.
Errani follows in the footsteps of Francesca Schiavone, who went as high as No.4 a few years ago.
No Italian has reached more Grand Slam semifinals than Errani though - she has been to three of them.
The kids have been having a ball at the XXVI Italiacom Open, including more kids tennis clinics...
This one was conducted by Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, who was a finalist at this event last year.
Zahlavova Strycova fell to none other than Errani in the final - and in the second round this year.
Zahlavova Strycova posed for a photo with the kids and instructors who helped out at the clinic.
