Zverev wins sixth Masters title at Italian Open

Alexander Zverev warmed up for the French Open by winning his sixth Masters title when he beat first-time finalist Nicolas Jarry 6-4 7-5 in the Italian Open final on Sunday (May 19).

It was a second title in Rome for the German third seed having won his first in 2017 when he was a 20-year-old and his first trophy since he broke his ankle in the French Open semi-finals in 2022.

Chilean Jarry, who had beaten Stefanos Tsitsipas and Tommy Paul to reach the final, could not break Zverev after the German won 95% of his first-serve points.

Meanwhile, earlier on Saturday, Iga Swiatek beat Aryna Sabalenka 6-2 6-3 to win her third Italian Open title as the Pole came out on top once again in a battle between the top two in the women’s rankings following her Madrid Open triumph earlier this month.
