With the start of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, in Rome, the short European clay-season also begins, which will culminate with the French Open 2020 in the Parisian background at the end of September, from 28 to 11 of October.
Novak Djokovic reached another ATP Mastesr 1000 final, after that of the Western and Southern Open in the Flushing Meadow bubble (and the stunning disqualification after hitting a line judge with a tennis ball), winning a good semifinal against Casper Ruud.
The Serb was able to win the match despite some troubles in the first set, when the Norwegian also got a break. Thanks to his usual mental strength and the young opponent's inexperience, Djokovic was able to recover the disadvantage and won first and second set with the final score of 7-5 6-3.
So Nole won a very good match and now in the final of the Italian Open, the Serb will meet the winner of the challenge between Denis Shapovalov and Diego Schwartzman.
