2004 – With Djokovic’s loss, Sunday’s Rome final will not feature Djokovic or Rafael Nadal for the first time since 2004, spanning a streak of 18 consecutive Rome finals with either Nadal, Djokovic (or both) competing for the trophy at Rome.

67-11 – Six-time champion Novak Djokovic falls to 67-11 lifetime at Rome. He loses a quarterfinal match for the first time since 2013. Djokovic has reached at least the quarterfinals in each of his 17 appearances at the Foro Italico.
