Them again: Djokovic and Nadal to meet in Italian Open final
ROME (AP) — Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal won a total of three matches over younger players and will renew their record-setting rivalry in the Italian Open final. Djokovic completed a rain-delayed quarterfinal victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas then beat local favorite Lorenzo Sonego in the second match of the day for both players. Nadal kept his time on court to a minimum by ending the surprising clay-court run of big-serving American Reilly Opelka. The women’s final will feature reigning French Open champion Iga Swiatek against 2019 Rome champion Karolina Pliskova.
