“Domi, congratulations. You deserve it probably more than anybody else to win a first Grand Slam title. And you won it in an incredible fashion coming back from 2 sets down.

However, the Serb has already arrived in Rome. He has started his training and he will be playing his first match very soon.

Novak will be eyeing his fifth title in Rome and if he wins it, it would give us a fair idea of his chances at the French Open.

The Serb won the title back in 2016 and he definitely wants to win it again as there is a big achievement in store for him – the Double Career Slam. No one has done it in the Open Era but hopefully, that will change when the event begins on September 27.
