Djokovic can also with a combative Schwartzman

Djokovic knew how to suffer as he had the day before with another Argentine, Del Potro, and beat Schwartzman to face Nadal on Saturday in the final.

With a capacity for suffering and overcoming that also speak well of the moment in form of Novak Djokovic, the Serbian knew how to suffer this Saturday against Diego Schwartzman as he had done on Friday against another Argentine, Juan Martín del Potro, who also won in three sets. The result this time was similar: 6-3, 6-7 (2) and 6-3 in 2h: 32 of hard combat.

This way, in his sixth consecutive semifinal in the 1000 Masters of Rome of ten in total ( 9-1 now), the Serbian reached his ninth final (sum 49 in the second category of the circuit) and will play it on Saturday (16:00, #Vamos) against his most intimate enemy: Rafa Nadal. It will be the 54th fight between both, the 26th in finals and the 24th on the ground.

Not was imperial Djokovic before a Schwartzman who grew from his 1.70 peeled and planted face more pertinacious and successful than expected. But the number one of the world demonstrated because it is and because it is in that moment of domination in which it is very difficult to beat him. In the first one he broke Schwartzman's serve to get 5-3 and serve to win the partial. The second was taken by the Peque with a race after an exchange of two breaks per head that culminated in a better playoff played by the Buenos Aires native. And the third set was resolved with a break in the sixth game in favor of the Balkan, who made a couple of tremendous points, including a wonderful counterpoint to respond to one of the many that made him his rival. In that stretch did not grant a single break. It was the rock that is usually.
