Novak Djokovic is back to winning.

In Rome, the world number one triumphed for the sixth time, winning against Stefanos Tsitsipas in two sets, with the final result of 6-0, 7-6 (5): after a first set in one direction, the Serbian had to reach the tiebreak, after recovering a break, to win the match against the Greek.

Djokovic said analyzed: "The result is the minimum, the great thing was to see him compete and see that he is in love with this sport." Thanks to the tournament won by Stefan Djokovic, his father Novak took the opportunity to remember the emotions that tennis offers.

Djokovic also explained how the child got involved in this sport and the role he wants to play in its future: "Yesterday Stefan slept late and when I talked to him he showed me how he would hit the ball, playing tennis without a racket.

It was fun because I was doing it too at his age and I saw the joy and pure emotion he feels for this sport. He's a boy, I never forced him to play tennis, it was always he who wanted to be on the court. If he embarks on this, I will be happy to take this journey with him and be able to help him in any way I can. Also, he reminds me of that childish energy that we sometimes lose because we take everything too seriously."
