Rafael Nadal Powers Past Longtime Rival Novak Djokovic In Italian Open Final

Business Insider reports Rafael Nadal powered past Novak Djokovic in the 2019 Italian Open final on Sunday.

Nadal seemed intent on revenge for how easily Djokovic managed to beat him in the Australian Open final earlier in the year.

Living up to his reputation as the clay court master, Nadal dominated the court with the trademark strength he gets from his forehand.

After the first set, it was the first time in their 52 match, 152 set rivalry that a "bagel," a set won to love, had been scored.
