..............................................

"Novak Djokovic earned his 1,000th tour-level win on Saturday with a dominant semi-final victory over Casper Ruud at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia."

"The World No. 1 was at his unplayable best for much of a 6-4, 6-3 victory, downing the fifth seed with relative ease despite a strong performance from the Norwegian."

"The Serbian becomes the fifth man in the Open Era to reach the 1,000-wins milestone, joining Jimmy Connors, Roger Federer, Ivan Lendl and Rafael Nadal."

"Thanks to the tournament and the crowd for celebrating the milestone with me," Djokovic said in his on-court interview.

"I've seen Roger and Rafa celebrate those milestones in the last couple of years and I was looking forward to get to that 1,000 myself."

"I'm really, really blessed and privileged to have that many victories on the Tour." Djokovic said

"It's been a long time, ever since I won my first match on the Tour. Hopefully I can keep going and many more victories to come." Djokovic said

"A five-time champion in Rome, the victory puts him through to his fourth straight final and 12th overall in the Italian capital."

"He will seek a record-extending 38th ATP Masters 1000 title in Sunday's final against Stefanos Tsitsipas."
