Weekend Tennis Diary

 

Novak Djokovic won 12 of the last 14 points of the match, beating Diego Schwartzman 7-5, 6-3 to win the Italian Open for the fifth time. It's his 81st singles title, 36th Masters 1000 title (a record) and fifth title of the year.


Earlier, Simona Halep won her first Rome crown after Karolina Pliskova -- the Czech Madison Keys -- retired injured in the second set. The final score: 6-0, 2-1.


Simona tweeted: I always dreamed of holding this trophy. Thank you to the tournament @InteBNLdItalia for a fantastic week and also big thanks to my team. I love you Roma! 


Was cute to hear Diego give a shout-out to fellow Argentine Ulises Badio, Novak's physio since 2017. You may recall Uli gave Nole a quarantine haircut not long ago.


I must say, Mikhail Youzhny was looking fit (and bloodless) scouting matching for protégé Denis Shapovalov

That's a Marco Cecchinato photo, not Caruso. At least they're both Italians!
