They experienced a scene from the legendary movie Roman Holiday…literally.

Married couple Anastasia Potapova and Alexander Shevchenko, who are competing at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome, took time to recreate an iconic photo of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck from the film.

β€œIt’s one of my favorite movies of all time,” Potapova said. β€œI was really excited to do this.”

Shevchenko quickly admitted that he is not a big fan of photo shoots. But he made sure to give his best for the activity, which marked just his second photo shoot with his wife.

β€œIt’s actually a nice style, it’s an elegant style,” Shevchenko said. β€œI also love my wife’s style. It was great, everything.”

Shevchenko will face Hungarian Fabian Marozsan, who surprised Carlos Alcaraz last year in Rome. Potapova opens against Wang Xiyu.
