What Happened at the 2022 Rome Open?
Top seeded Novak Djokovic shrugged off his semifinal loss at the Madrid Open to go on to win this men’s singles title in Rome by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final.
He did not drop a single set in the entire tournament, with wins over Aslan Karatsev, Stan Wawrinka, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Casper Ruud punctuating his run through to the title-decider. It was the 38th time that Djokovic had won a Masters 1000 title while also clinching the Italian Open for the sixth time in his career.
Rafael Nadal fell in the third round of the competition to Denis Shapovalov.
The women’s singles title was won by Iga Swiatek, who defeated the Madrid Open winner Ons Jabeur in the final. Swiatek ran away to a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Jabeur. In doing so, Swiatek successfully defended her title.
Like Djokovic, Swiatek also did not lose a single set in the competition with wins over Elena-Gabriela Ruse, Victoria Azarenka, Bianca Andreescu and Aryna Sabalenka taking her to the final.
Second seeded Paula Badosa fell in the third round of the tournament.
What happened at the 2021 Rome Open?
Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek won the men’s and women’s singles titles at the 2021 Italian Open.
The Spaniard overcame Novak Djokovic in three hard-fought sets to lift the trophy for the 10th time while Swiatek registered one of the most facile wins in a WTA tournament win defeating Karolina Pliskova 6-0, 6-0.
What happened at the 2020 Rome Open?
Novak Djokovic won the 2020 edition of the competition in the men’s section of the draw while Simona Halep was the women’s champion that season. Here’s more on how they went on to win the title and how the other players performed in the competition.
Djokovic benefitted from Rafael Nadal’s early exit at this year’s Italian Open to go on to win the title in 2020. The Serb survived some early tough moments to get past Diego Schwartzman in the final before clinching the match 7-5, 6-3 to grab the win.
Schwartzman had earlier stunned the second seeded Rafael Nadal in straight sets in the quarterfinals, before needing a third set tie-breaker against Denis Shapovalov in the semifinal.
Djokovic’s biggest test came in the quarterfinals against German qualifier Dominik Koepfer, who managed to take a set off him.
Much like the top seed in the men’s draw, the women’s singles competition also saw the top seed Simona Halep win the title. Halep was leading Karolina Pliskova, 6-2, 2-0 in the final when she quit the match because of fitness concerns.
Halep had defeated Jasmine Paolini, Dayana Yastremska and Yulia Putintseva in straight sets to make it to the semifinal where she needed three sets to get past Garbine Muguruza.
Pliskova had defeated 2019 French Open runnerup Marketa Vondrousova in the semifinal to enter the title-decider.
What Happened at the 2019 Italian Open?
Defending champion Nadal managed to win the title yet again as he stormed past Novak Djokovic in the final. While Djokovic did manage to take a set off Nadal, he never managed to fully recover from the first set bagelling in that final and fell to a three-set defeat.
The top seeded Djokovic had earlier needed three sets in his semis against Diego Schwartzman as well, after having edged out Juan Martin del Potro 4-6, 7-6, 6-4 in the quarters. Nadal, on the other hand, wasted no time getting into the finals, with just 13 games dropped till before the semi-finals. When he won the first set in the final, 6-0, the writing seemed to be on the wall before the Serb raised his game and Nadal dropped his first set of the competition.
Kei Nishikori, Fernando Verdasco and Roger Federer were the other quarterfinalists in the tournament with the Swiss maestro withdrawing from his match against Tsitsipas due to injury.
Two-time defending champion Elina Svitolina was shocked in the second round by Victoria Azarenka, while Pliskova won the tournament beating Britain’s Johanna Konta in the final. Pliskova clinched the title 6-3, 6-4 having beaten Maria Sakkari in straight sets in the semifinal as well.
Pliskova had earlier gone past Ajla Tomljanovic in the second round, beat rising star Sofia Kenin in the third and then edged out Azarenka in her quarterfinal. Konta defeated Marketa Vondousova in the quarterfinal before sending out sixth seeded Kiki Bertens in the semis. Naomi Osaka withdrew from her quarterfinal against Bertens, while Maria Sakkari overcame Kristina Mladenovic in the battle of the qualifiers to enter the last-four.
