For the first time, hard court specialist Medvedev triumphed at an ATP event on sand. This surface will also be played on this Sunday at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris. In the upcoming world rankings, he passed the Serbian Novak Djokovic in second place by winning the tournament. World number one Carlos Alcaraz from Spain surprisingly failed in Rome in the third round.

Olympic champion Alexander Zverev was eliminated in Rome against Medvedev in the round of 16 and is still looking for his form. The 26-year-old will compete in the coming days in preparation for the French Open at the ATP tournament in Geneva. Record winner Rafael Nadal from Spain had recently canceled his participation in Paris due to injury.
