Tsitsipas comes of age to beat Nadal and reach Madrid final

Rafael Nadal:'Alexander Zverev is the young guy who won most titles so far'

Nadal was able to break Tsitsipas to reduce the Greek's lead to 5-3, but Tsitsipas immediately broke back to win the match 6-4 2-6 6-3 and book his place in the final of a Masters 1000 event for the second time in his career.

Djokovic dominated a clearly exhausted Tsitsipas less than 24 hours after the 20-year-old Greek had stunned five-time champion Nadal in a semi-final.

Nadal is trying to rebound from consecutive eliminations in the semifinals of both Monte Carlo and Barcelona, which marked his worst start to the clay-court season in four years. He reached his second Masters 1000 final, scored his first victory over a player inside the Top 2 of the ATP Rankings and will reach a career-high ATP Ranking of No. 7 on Monday.

World number one Novak Djokovic beat a tired-looking Stefanos Tsitsipas to win the Madrid Open for a third time.

Messages from other players were shown on the large screens during the ceremony, with most praising Ferrer's toughness and "never-give-up attitude" on the court.

"What happened in the last 14 years on clay is not the normality", Rafa added. That is because he was beaten at the semi-final stage in Monte Carlo and Barcelona, two events which he had nearly made his own over the years.

Djokovic did not fade for long, immediately jumping back into the spotlight with a HUGE WIN at the 2019 Madrid Open. Partnering with Estonia's Kenneth Raisma, Tsitsipas won the 2016 Wimbledon boys' doubles title. "I think I will still have a very good opportunity to fight for titles for the rest of the year".

IPL final 2019 | Mumbai beat Chennai, Shane Watson 80
For a team like CSK that has the most balanced side among all other IPL teams, this is definitely a cause of concern. Neither was able to make a consistent case this year, but 12 months down the line, who knows how the land will lie.

"You just have to accept it and I have to accept it naturally. I could feel the fatigue and soreness not just in my legs, but everywhere in my body", said Tsitsipas.

Rafael Nadal is out of the Madrid Open.

"I needed to step up, Stefanos is very talented". And what I have to do is to be fit and to play properly and a high tennis level. "I feel like I'm having fun playing tennis again, which is always a good thing for me and I always play well if I have that mentality".

"He deserved the victory", said Tsitsipas of Djokovic after his 6-3, 6-4 defeat.

"He is playing really well", Nadal said of Tiafoe. She had victories over three Grand Slam champions in the Spanish capital - Jelena Ostapenko, Sloane Stephens and Petra Kvitova. Djokovic has won five of his last seven final appearances overall and is 13-10 in final appearances on clay.

Halep is chasing her third Madrid title after winning the tournament in 2016 and 2017.
