Djokovic Claims Madrid Open Title

Rafael Nadal- Rafael Nadal still pulling in the Spanish fans as ‘big three’ battle for title

The 31-year-old player won the Australian Open earlier this year and.

Nadal seemed to have the momentum after winning 13 out of 16 points at the end of the second set but he spurned two break points in the decider before Tsitsipas broke twice for 5-2.

"I feel like this tournament win was very important for my level of confidence because after Australian Open I wasn't playing my best, I wasn't finding the right game and the consistency on the court in Indian Wells, Miami and Monte-Carlo, " the world No. 1 said to media during his news conference.

"If it happens, I hope that we will both be at our best because then that would make the match-up as it is supposed to be, you know, finals of Grand Slams", quoted Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece after the final during day nine of the Mutua Madrid Open at La Caja Magica on May 12, 2019 in Madrid, Spain. His straight set win over a stellar clay court player in Dominic Thiem during the semifinals was fantastic.

Nadal insists that what's happening to him of late on clay is more normal than was his dominance on those courts for so many years. In the victory, Djokovic won 75 percent of his first serve points and 46 percent of his second serve points.

"He's very talented", Djokovic said of Tsitsipas.

"Dominic is one of the best tennis players in the world at this moment, especially on this surface, so this was a very big win for me", Djokovic said.

Senior ministers agreed at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, however, to press ahead with the talks, May's spokesman said. Cross-party Brexit talks between Labour and the Tories have so far failed to produce a compromise agreement.

On the women's side, top-ranked Naomi Osaka reached the quarterfinals with a straight-set win over Aliaksandra Sasnovich and will next face Belinda Bencic, who dropped only two games in her victory over Kateryna Kozlova. I have been able to win a lot for a lot of years on this surface. "I just didn't have solutions".

"This is a very important win for me, especially for my confidence", 15-time Grand Slam victor Djokovic said.

Rafael Nadal is out of the Madrid Open. And what I have to do is to be fit and to play properly and a high tennis level. "These are exactly the matches that I need".

"He is playing really well", Nadal said of Tiafoe.

"He deserved the victory, he played unbelievable".

Djokovic, the 2016 French Open champion, won the title Sunday on the clay courts at Madrid. Tsitsipas is playing incredible tennis right now, but it's fair to question how much he has left after six sets and almost five hours in his last two matches.

Halep, victor in Madrid in 2016 and 2017, lost the chance to take over the No. 1 ranking from Naomi Osaka.
