RAFAEL NADAL won the Rome Masters for the tenth time. In the final, after 2 hours and 49 minutes, he celebrated with a 7:5:1:6, 6:3 match against Novak Djokovic.
With this victory, Nadal has the same number of Masters titles as Djokovic-both have 36 titles. At the same time, Roma is now his fourth game, and he has at least ten titles. He has won Roland Garros, Barcelona and Monte Carlo ten times before. Djokovic leads 29:28 in the relationship between tennis’s biggest rivalry.
The Spaniard won the first set at the decisive moment and got a better game, and then in the middle of the second set, he experienced a sharp decline in the game. The decisive moment occurred at 2:2 in the third set, when Nadal saved the ball with the help of the net. Since then, he has won three consecutive games, and Djokovic has not beaten Nadal on the ground in six years, but he was unable to make a comeback.
Hope this is the 88th professional title. Djokovic lost six titles.
