ROME, Italy - Daria Gavrilova has had some of the biggest moments of her young career at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, making the semifinals in 2015 and stunning Simona Halep after she won the Mutua Madrid Open title just last year.
All of these memories make it even more surprising that the Aussie would forget to enter the main draw at the Premier 5 event.
"I love this city and really love to play here every year," she reassured fans in a video published on the tournament's official Twitter page.
Gavrilova will have to play the qualifying tournament - the deadline for which comes later - this weekend in the hopes of making it into the main draw after all.
"Hopefully you guys will come and support me, have a bit of fun and watch some tennis!"
