But there was never much sign of an upset in the Spanish capital, where the world number two opened up with a 6-3, 6-3 victory.

The Serb broke Tsitsipas early in the first set and late in the second to comfortably close out the match at the Magic Box centre court, securing his 14th clay title without dropping a set. "Now I am feeling better in matches and I think every one gives me the chance to get better".

"I've done a few steps forward, maybe not enough, but I have improved some things".

"Emotionally it was very tough, it was one of my toughest wins", he said. "It was very important".

"With the tennis that I've played today, I feel like I'm ready", Djokovic said. "My opponent has been better when that happens you lose". "In general, it's a day to be very satisfied, very happy".

The young Greek played aggressively from the start, breaking Nadal's serve six times. I'm going to have to be mentally focused and also psychologically ready for a fight.

"She played better tennis tonight".
