Only Ruud stood between number 1 and a new personal record. He got rid of one of the revelations in two sets (6-4 and 6-3), as he has done in all his matches in this tournament so far, and becomes part of a select club of five tennis players .

“I saw Roger and Rafa and I was looking for him too. It’s been a while since I won the first game and I hope I can win more. Hopefully tomorrow (Sunday),” said the Serbian on the central court of the Foro Italico where he received a cake with a number 1,000 initialed on it.

“Thank you for the atmosphere tonight, beautiful and electric. If there were two places where I would have liked to celebrate my 1,000 victories, it would be Serbia and Rome”, added a ‘Nole’ who did not forget his team and family in recognition and who received the loudest ovation of the night.

“Thank you for your support this year, this victory is not possible without you,” he said.
