Phenomenal Djokovic Beats Tsitsipas to Win Madrid Open

Novak Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas to win his third Madrid Open title tying Rafael Nadal’s record for Masters 1000 titles, and further cementing himself as one of the greatest ever.

Djokovic, whose last title was his 15th Grand Slam victory at the Australian Open last January, won 6-3 6-4, and will now head to the Italian Open in Rome, where he is a four-time champion.

The world No 1 backed up his gruelling semi-final victory against the young Dominic Thiem with another impressive performance to deny 20-year-old Tsitsipas the first Masters 1000 title of his rising career.

Sunday's final was a contest between youth and experience

The Serb had lost his only previous encounter against Tsitsipas in the Rogers Cup last-16 in Toronto, where the three-time ATP Tour winner reached his only previous Masters 1000 final last August.
