Novak Djokovic has won the Italian Open after defeating Diego Schwartzman in the final of the competition.
The world number one’s latest victory means he has now won a record 36 Masters titles in his career.
He matched Rafael Nadal on the all-time list of Masters winners when he won the Western & Southern Open title last month.
Djokovic was disqualified from the US Open, but brought his A-game to the Italian Open, beating Schwartzman 7-5 6-3 in the final.
Speaking in the aftermath of the game, the 33-year-old said he was super pleased with his output.

“It was a great week, a very challenging week. I don’t think I played my best tennis this week but I think I found my best tennis in the decisive moments.
“I’m proud I managed to needed to find that fifth gear when I needed to,” Djokovic added.
The Italian Open final was watched by a small crowd, who were made to sit a distance from each other as part of COVID-19 protocols.
Djokovic will now be aiming to add another title to his locker when the French Open begins in Sunday.
