ROME (AP) - American Andy Roddick, Russian Marat Safin and several other tennis players in Rome for the Italian Open were evacuated from their hotel rooms early Saturday after a fire broke out, killing three people.

A few of the players had their rackets and other equipment damaged and nearly all of them had to rearrange their practice schedules, said Nicola Arzani, the ATP Tour's director of communications.

None of the players was injured, but "they were really scared," he said.

A FIRE broke out at a luxury Roman hotel early today, killing an American and two Canadians, fire officials said.

Police took two American women in for questioning because the blaze started in their room, but said they were being treated as witnesses, not suspects.

The fire broke out about 5.15am in Room 305 of the five-star Parco dei Principi hotel near Rome's Villa Borghese park, police and fire officials said.

Smoke and flames spread quickly throughout the floor and to other parts of the hotel, forcing the evacuation of its 350 guests, many of them tennis players in town for the Italian Open, which starts on Monday.

Among the evacuated guests was American tennis star Andy Roddick, ranked No.2 in the world and the No.2 seed at the tournament. Neither he nor any of the other players was injured, tournament organisers said.

Andy Roddick was one of several leading tennis players to escape a hotel fire in Rome which killed three people.



World number two Roddick, preparing for next week's Rome Masters, helped a number of guests onto the roof of the five-star Parco dei Principi hotel.

Dutchman Sjeng Schalken and Italy's Filippo Volandri were evacuated on firefighters' cranes.

Marat Safin was also in the hotel, but according to an ATP spokesman no players were injured in the blaze.

"Roddick helped people onto the roof," said ATP communications director Nicola Arzani.

"Several of the players had a real fright. I talked to a few of them this morning and I know that Safin, his trainer and his girlfriend were quite shaken up,"

Don't get me wrong but who the mumu cares about this?

Something like that happens every day several times all over the world. People loose their life in car crashes, flames etc - but now as we have some tennis players it is reportable?

Jesus. And shortly after they told us about the 3 who lost their lives ...and then the really important reportworthy information that "A few of the players had their rackets and other equipment damaged and nearly all of them had to rearrange their practice schedules".

Just my opinion but this is no news for ATS this is more news for a local newspaper. There is more important stuff in the world thats not even noted here.

Pardon me, but is there any conspiracy aspect to this or is it a post for points?

Shoo, Not at all! I go back to the original. What does a small fire in a Rome hotel have to do with ATS?

So ATS will delete half of it's post database now?
- yours as well?

We were discussing about the sense of this post. If criticsm(or better: a different opinion) should stay behind the scenes here, I seriously doubt the credibility of this forum.
And this is no offense against you or Ocelot. I have no bad feelings against you two!
