Novak Djokovic celebrates with the Madrid Open trophy after a ruthless display
Novak Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas to win his third Madrid Open title and tie Rafael Nadal’s record for Masters 1000 titles.
The world No 1 backed up his gruelling semi-final victory against in-form Dominic Thiem with another impressive performance to deny 20-year-old Tsitsipas the first Masters 1000 title of his burgeoning career.
Djokovic did not lose a set on his way to the title in the Spanish capital
Djokovic, whose last title was his 15th Grand Slam victory at the Australian Open in January, won 6-3 6-4, and will now head to the Italian Open in Rome, where he is a four-time champion.
