Rafael Nadal had to dig deep to beat Novak Djokovic in the final of the Rome Masters and claim his first title of the season, winning 6-0 4-6 6-1 after more than two hours of intense battle.

Djokovic provided a sterner test for the Spaniard in the second set, impressively saving three break points at 3-3 before going on to break Nadal to win the set.

World number one Djokovic, who won at the Madrid Open last week, produced an incredible performance in his 54th meeting with second-ranked Nadal.

With the victory, Nadal now overtakes Djokovic at the top of the list for Masters wins. The pair were level at 33 each before Sunday’s final in a timely boost ahead of his assault on a 12th French Open crown in a week’s time.
"For me, as I said every day, winning titles is important but the most important thing is feeling competitive and feeling healthy," Nadal told ATP. "I'm very happy for the victory, I played well.
"It's always a special match against Novak, he's having a great season, winning in Australia, Madrid and in the final here," the Spaniard added.
