Novak Djokovic tipped to have Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal retirement problem

Novak Djokovic now has a record 36 Masters 1000 titles after his win in the 2020 Italian Open final Monday in Rome. File

The world number one defeated Diego Schwartzman 7-5 6-3 in Monday's final, the same scoreline he had recorded to defeat Casper Ruud in the last four to reach a 10th final at the tournament.

Regardless how hard it is I try to take the next day and hope for the best and move on.

The world number one is currently tied with Rafael Nadal on 35 Masters 1000 titles, but the Serbian now has a glorious chance to overtake the Spaniard in Monday's final where he will face the victor of Denis Shapovalov v Diego Schwartzman.

The victory means Djokovic now has a record 36 Masters 1000 titles and remains unbeaten in 2020 barring his early US Open exit this month when he struck a line judge with a ball.

A comeback looked to be on the cards when Djokovic sent a forehand wide to give Schwartzman a break in the first game of the second set.

For the first time on Sunday a maximum of 1,000 people were authorised in the stands.

Shapovalov, the No. 12 seed from Richmond Hill, Ont., has had a string of good results over the last two weeks, including his first quarter-final appearance at a Grand Slam at the U.S. Open last week.

In the women's final, top-seeded Simona Halep won her first Rome title when 2019 champion Karolina Pliskova retired midway through their match with a left thigh injury.

After the scientists wrote to the global health body, it released a report on July 9 on airborne transmission and the spread of the virus.

Plikova dictated play against Vondrouova with her serve, hitting six aces to Vondrouova's one and saving five of the seven break points she faced.

"It was a great week, a very challenging week", the Serb said in his on-court interview.

"I don't think I played my best tennis, to be honest".

"That makes me very satisfied and proud that I managed to find that fifth gear when it was most needed".

Despite seeking help from her physio after the first set, the heavily strapped Czech struggled in the decider.

At Roland Garros, players and their entourages will be confined to two bio-secure hotels. Even if they weren't all three-set matches, they were still on clay, which is quite a fast switch from hard courts.

"I have two dreams, you know, tomorrow", said the 28-year-old from Buenos Aires.

As for Halep, she can approach the French Open with confidence having not lost a match since the Australian Open semifinals in January. "Hopefully I'll be able to raise that level for the French Open because that's going to be necessary if I want to go deep in the tournament". "I'm really happy it happened".
