Maria, 28, rallied to beat 10th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 and win her third Rome title in the women’s tournament while Novak, 27, sailed through to his fourth Italian Open title beating Roger Federer fairly easily 6–4, 6–3 in the final.
“It was a great week and today was my best match,” Novak told the crowd (via UTSanDiego). “It’s always a pleasure to play against Roger and obviously I’m very pleased by today. … Along with 2011, this is the best year of my career. I don’t know how (to) continue at Roland Garros but obviously I have a lot of confidence. I hope I can continue like this.”
