'1st bagel in Djodal match!' Ruthless Rafa Nadal wins 1st set 6-0 in Rome Masters against Djokovic
Spanish tennis great Rafael Nadal is in ruthless form in the Rome Masters final against world number one Novak Djokovic, winning the first set without dropping a game to win 6-0 in Italy, also known as a 'bagel'.

It's the first time either player has competed a bagel over the other in their storied rivalry, which stretches over 54 meetings between two of the modern eras greatest ever players. 

The two court giants have shared 142 sets together but never has either showed such dominance in a single one, with Nadal taking the delicious-sounding honor of being the first to romp home without stoping a a game to claim the first set in the final in the Italian capital. 

World number two Nadal will be looking to get revenge on his Serbian counterpart not least for the straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 drubbing the latter handed out in the Australian Open final back in January to claim his seventh title Down Under.
