Andy Murray, Serena Williams Reign Supreme in Rome

Great Britain’s Andy Murray put on a dominating performance in the men’s singles final against Serbia’s Novak Djokovic to clinch the Rome Masters title on Sunday in the Italian city here.

The outcome of the summit clash didn’t really sprung up as a surprise, given that Djokovic accidently injured his ankle in the previous round and was unsure of his fitness level heading into the match.

Moreover, with the momentum that Murray continued to enjoy at the tournament, he was certainly in to give the top-seeded Djokovic a run for his money.

Murray, seeded just second to Djokovic, won a creditable 82 percent of his first serve points, broke his Serbian opponent thrice, and emerged unbroken on serve to pull off a 6-3 6-3 triumph.

Serena wins women’s title

There was no upset in the women’s singles final, however, as the top-seeded Serena Williams pulled off a 7-6 6-3 conquest of Madison Keys in an all-America final.

Interestingly, this was the first title of the season for Williams, who had earlier ended as the runner-up at the Australian Open and Indian Wells earlier this year.
