Novak Djokovic, who recently completed his 1000th ATP tour-level victories in a semi-final victory against Casper Ruud, carried on his exceptional form to overcome Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-0, 7-6(5) in the final.

Despite being 4-1 down against Tsitsipas in the second set, Djokovic marked an exceptional comeback as he won five of the next seven sets to take it to a tiebreak before winning the decider and sealing his sixth Italian Open title.

The 34-years-old enjoyed a perfect week as he recently became just the fifth player in the Open Era to complete 1000 tour-level wins after Jimmy Connors, Roger Federer, Ivan Lendl, and Rafa Nadal.

In the women’s category of the Italian Open, Iga Swiatek outclassed Ons Jabeur 6-2, 6-2 to win her fifth consecutive title.
