The 27-year-old German will climb to fourth in the ATP rankings

Alexander Zverev secured his sixth Masters title by defeating first-time finalist Nicolas Jarry 6-4, 7-5 in the Italian Open final on Sunday. This victory marked Zverev’s second title in Rome, his first coming in 2017 when he was just 20 years old. It also represented his first trophy since recovering from a severe ankle injury sustained during the French Open semi-finals in 2022.

The 27-year-old German will climb to fourth in the ATP rankings as he continues to regain his form ahead of the French Open. Throughout the match, Zverev demonstrated his resilience and skill, winning 95% of his first-serve points and committing few unforced errors, effectively neutralizing the powerful serve of the aggressive 21st-seeded Chilean, Jarry.

Despite Jarry’s impressive run to the final, which included victories over Stefanos Tsitsipas and Tommy Paul, he struggled to break Zverev’s serve. Jarry did manage to save three match points, but Zverev ultimately clinched the victory. The win in Rome solidified Zverev’s strong performance throughout the tournament, where he dropped only one set.
