Perfect week: Djokovic wins the Masters in Rome without loss of sets
Shortly before the French Open, the Serb Novak Djokovic won its first tennis tournament this year. One day after his 1000th victory on the ATP tour in the Rome semi-final against Norwegian Casper Ruud, the world ranking first on Sunday settled 6: 0, 7: 6 (7: 5) through.
That was a perfect week for me.
Djokovic ended the Masters in the Italian capital without loss of sets. “It was a perfect week for me,” said the 34-year-old, who is getting closer to his best in front of the French Open.
Tsitsipas (23 )’s world ranking fifth fifth had turned up the two places better with 4: 6, 6: 3, 6: 3 on Saturday. The French Open in Paris, the second Grand Slam tournament of the year, begin on May 22nd.
In his second final this year, Djokovic was already 1: 4 after a perfect first round in the second set, but after a catch -up he saved himself in the tie -break and made everything clear after 1:38 hours.
