The 2020 Rome Masters has come to a close. In the final, the "Budget" Schwarzman, who worked hard with all his energy, and Djokovic, who was in a very ordinary state, were not at the same level at all. The small German won easily in Rome for the fifth time. This is his fourth crown this year and the 81st in his career. It is also his fifth time to win the Rome Masters. He has won 36 Masters titles in total, surpassing Nadal's 35 and ranking first in history alone.
Djokovic is invincible
As an unshakable brother in tennis today, Djokovic successfully won two consecutive championships in back-to-back events after missing the US Open. Especially this time in the Rome Masters, he was drawn to a lottery and easily advanced along the way. His opponent Schwartzman in the finals was slightly weaker.
Schwarzman, known as the “170 Strongest on the Surface”, was in surprisingly good form at the Masters this time, especially after the elimination of the previous champion Nadal, his self-confidence reached a new height. The Argentine said before the game that if he can win the finals, he can realize his two dreams: one is to win the Masters for the first time, and the other is to enter the world's top ten for the first time. However, in terms of past record, he had lost all four games against the Serbian Kings before. Even if he entered the final with a super dark horse this time, there is still a big gap between the level and the Djokovic.
After the game, Djokovic said: "This is a very great week, and also a very challenging week. I don’t think I have played the best tennis all week, but I think I played today, yesterday and I found the best tennis I could play when I needed it most in almost every game. This (winning the championship in Rome) undoubtedly made me very satisfied and proud, because when I needed this championship most, the fifth time I succeeded in Pick it up here. This is another great champion and I am very satisfied with it."
Keep brushing records in 2020
This year is the 10th time the Serbian has reached the final of the Rome Masters and won the cup for the fifth time. Interestingly, he set a new record this time, he was the oldest winner of the Rome Masters. The previous record was set by Nadal last year, when Nadal won the Rome Masters at the age of 32 years and 11 months. Djokovic, who won this year, is 33 years and 4 months old.
In addition, Dr. De also set a new record this week: ranked first in the world in week 287, surpassing Sampras of 286 weeks, and became the second longest player in the ATP ranking in the first week. Federer, ranked No. 1 in the world at 310 weeks, is only 23 weeks away.
As early as when he arrived in Rome, Djokovic bluntly stated that he had two biggest goals in his tennis career: one is to surpass Federer's 310 weeks in the world ranking first, and the other is to break Federer's record of 20 Grand Slam titles. . "I think I am in an excellent position to break these two records." The Serb is full of confidence.
德约科维奇早在抵达罗马时就直言自己在网球事业中有两个最大的目标：一个是超越费德勒的310周世界排名第一，另一个是打破费德勒的20个大满贯冠军记录。 。 “我认为我很容易打破这两项记录。”塞尔维亚人充满信心。
All the masters are in place, the French Open is worth seeing
After the Rome game, the French Open will arrive as scheduled from September 27 to October 11. As one of the four Grand Slams, the French Open of the 2020 season has gathered almost all the masters of men's tennis. In addition to Djokovic and Nadal, Tim, Zverev, Wawrinka, Medvedev, who just won the US Open championship, will all go to Roland Garros.
This time Xiaode, who took the Rome Masters champion to the French Open, is the biggest favorite to win the championship. He himself is looking forward to hitting the second French Open championship trophy as a winner and renewing his glory. In all, Druid has achieved a record of 31 wins and 1 loss this season. He has won the ATP Cup, Australian Open, Dubai, Southwest Open and the Roma Masters. The only loss is the missed line referee of the US Open. There is no doubt that the 18th Grand Slam title missed at the US Open is beckoning violently. However, because he could not give full play to his strengths on the clay court, Xiaode also pointed out that he needs to improve in more details in order to expect good results at the French Open and win the double slam.
Nadal, another favorite to win this year, has been online since his comeback this year, but this time he lost to the "Budget" Schwarzman at the Rome Masters. The results of the semi-finals were not satisfactory. However, leaving early also gave him more time to prepare for the French Open. As the owner of 12 French Open championship trophies, the "king of clay court" is still the most powerful contender for the French Open championship this year. This time, apart from Djokovic, Rafa’s opponents at the French Open also include Tim, who just won the US Open and lost to him twice in the French Open finals. Now that Tim has a Grand Slam in hand, his mentality has become more mature, and he will definitely try his best to hit his second Grand Slam champion.
