Italian Open Finals LIVE: Rafael Nadal to play Novak Djokovic in Rome final
At 2-1 down in the first set Nadal had to save four break points, but he then broke his big-hitting rival in the next game before going on to claim the set. One break of serve was also enough for the 34-year-old Spaniard in the second set as he secured victory in Rome.
Nadal will play world number one Novak Djokovic, who beat Italian Lorenzo Sonego 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 6-2, in the final. Djokovic was on court twice on Saturday as he came from a set down to beat Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas in their rain-affected quarter-final before playing Sonego after Nadal’s match.
Against Tsitsipas, the Serb trailed 6-4 2-1 when the match was suspended because of rain on Friday, but he broke serve twice when it resumed on Saturday to force a decider.
He then twice recovered from a break down in a see-saw final set to win 4-6 7-5 7-5 and reach the last four. Sonego had also been in action on Saturday as he beat Andrey Rublev 3-6 6-4 6-3 to set up the semi-final with Djokovic.
Nevertheless, the pair produced an enthralling match lasting two hours and 44 minutes.
Italian Open Finals LIVE: Iga Swiatek will play Karolina Pliskova in Rome final
French Open champion Iga Swiatek won two matches in a day to set up an Italian Open final against Karolina Pliskova in Rome. Nineteen-year-old Swiatek, seeded 15th, beat 17-year-old American Coco Gauff 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 in her semi-final.
Earlier on Saturday, the Pole saw off Elina Svitolina 6-2 7-5 in a match held over from Friday because of rain.
Pliskova, 29, made her third straight Italian Open final with a 6-1 3-6 6-2 win over Croatia’s Petra Martic. Czech ninth seed Pliskova, the 2019 champion, lost last year’s final after retiring injured while trailing Simona Halep.
“I started worrying about the semi-final right after I finished basically. Kind of mad that I couldn’t even celebrate,” said Swiatek, who can break into the world top 10 if she beats Pliskova.
“I told myself there’s nothing I can do about it, I have no influence. I was pretty surprised that we’re going to be scheduled at 4pm because the men’s semi-final was at 6pm. It’s a new experience for me.”
