Italian Open: Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova clinch titles

  • World number one Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 6-4 6-3 in a closely-fought match to clinch his fourth Italian Open title and avenge his loss against the Swede at the Indian Wells Masters.

    The Serb later said that considering “the kind of mindset” he was in, “hopefully it's gonna take me far in Roland Garros”.

    Meanwhile, in the women’s final, Russia’s third-seeded Maria Sharapova came back from a set down to defeat Spain’s Carla Suarez 4-6 7-5 6-1 and win her third Italian Open title.
