Coincidentally in Rome 2019 we had the same 4 players in the semis

Nadal beats tsitsipas easily
Schwartzman forced a 3rd set in his match vs Djokovic

We all know what then happened in the final

This time around we had a different pairing, yet the result so far is the same, Nadal ruthless, Djokovic falls short

So my prediction for this final is: Nadal will win easily, but with a bit of luck Djokovic will snap a set, he has to watch out for bagels though

You forgot something. Djokovic was coming to Rome after winning Madrid and before the final he had 2 difficult matches, the semifinal also ended very late. All that and he still took a set from Nadal.
Now, he is fresh as a daisy compared to Rome, has a free day and is also playing better tennis.
Nadal is in massive danger.

This is a victory lap for Nadal, and the demise of Djokovic.
This is clay.
Djokovic is no longer Nadal's main rival on clay.
The gap has never been wider, Nadal over Djokovic in straight sets 2017 and 2018, and then 60 46 61 in 2019.
We are here to celebrate, and that is all.

Yesterday match was not that physical, Novak stays only 45 more min than Rafa, apart from last 3 games of third set and 4th set, points in other sets was finishing fast.
In Rome situation was different, he played 3 hours match in QF and next day in semi 2and a half day then in less than 20 hours he had to play Rafa, the king of play in finals
