Novak Djokovic Singing

World number one Novak Djokovic delivered a terrific performance on Sunday as he outplayed Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets to win the 2022 Italian Open title. The 34-year-old and winner of 1000 career games produced a stunning comeback in the second set from a 1-4 lead to Tsitsipas and sealed the win later with 6-0, 7-6 (7-5) to take the clay-court title.

After a controversial stint at Australia Open and then early exits from subsequent tournaments, Djokovic looked in sublime form at the Italian Open as he remained unbeaten before he lifted his sixth title in Rome on Sunday. By beating Tsitsipas impressively, he has registered the 38th win in a Masters event without dropping a set, which speaks volumes of his potential.

Although his start on the clay was rough, as he suffered a first-round exit in Monte Carlo and was defeated in the semi-final in Madrid, but title win in Rome will surely boost his confidence ahead of Roland Garros.

Check out the match-winning moment for Novak Djokovic:

Post-win, Novak Djokovic confessed that he went through a tough time at the start of this year, but he worked hard to leave everything behind. “After everything that happened at the beginning of the year, it was important for me to win a big title, but I feel it’s already behind me. I feel great on the court. Mentally as well. I’m fresh. I’m sharp,” he said.

The reigning Italian Open champion also informed that he wants to play his best game in the upcoming Grand Slams. However, Djokovic also showed his singing talent as he sang with a trophy in his hand. Notably, the Serbian showed his keen interest in the recently concluded Eurovision Song Contest, which eventually, a team from Serbia won minutes after Djokovic lifted his trophy in Rome.

Djokovic has admitted the fact that he has been closely following the event and particularly his home team Serbia all week. Post-win, he even took to social media to share his support on the Serbian team at Eurovision 2022. The scoreline of 6-0 will eventually boost Djokovic’s confidence as the world No. 1, is now chasing a record-equaling 21st major schedule to start next Sunday at the French Open.
