In the Rome Masters final, Rafael Nadal always sought to attack ball situations early.

Nadal defeated Djokovic for the 28th time in his career.

Winning short series and losing long series still helped Nadal defeat Djokovic 7-5, 1-6, 6-3.

In the match with Djokovic, Nadal served more spin and stability than in Madrid.

When Djokovic did not press the left well, Nadal immediately dodged the left and hit the right – the shot that helped Nadal score the fastest live ball point.
