‘Inspirational’ Djokovic wins third Madrid title and 33rd Masters

Novak Djokovic joined Rafael Nadal as a 33time Masters champion on Sunday when he swept to a 63, 64 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas to claim a third Madrid Open title.

The world number one dominated a clearly exhausted opponent less than 24 hours after the 20yearold Greek had stunned fivetime champion Nadal in a semifinal which ended around midnight on Saturday.

Djokovic and Nadal will now attempt to claim a 34th Masters title in Rome this week in a key indicator ahead of Roland Garros which gets under way on May 26.

Djokovic never let Tsitsipas get into gear in a final which lasted just over 90 minutes

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

"I was not playing my best after winning the Australia Open but I started this week well, not dropping a set all through. Ive played some of my best tennis here."
