Zverev wins sixth ATP Masters title in Rome beating Alexander Jarry in straight sets

Alexander Zverev secured his sixth ATP Masters 1000 crown with a convincing 6-4 7-5 win against Nicolas Jarry in the Italian Open final. 

The German lifted his second title in Rome having won the tournament in 2017 after an impressive straight-sets victory over the world No. 24.

This was Zverev’s biggest win since he suffered a serious ankle injury in the French Open semi-finals back in 2022, but he will now head to Roland-Garros as the world No. 4. 

Despite a dominant display on clay, Zverev was quick to praise his opponent after a great week in Rome.

“I want to congratulate Nicolas,” Zverev said. “It was an unbelievable week, the players that you beat and the way that you beat them is incredible really.

Zverev took the first set with ease before squandering two match points on Jarry’s serve at 5-4 in the second.

However, Zverev recovered to seal the victory before dedicating the title to every member of his team. 

“I think the sacrifice that everybody is making for us to have these trophies and for us to be standing on these types of courts and playing at this level is incredible, from everyone,” he added. 

“I want to thank everybody who is sitting in my box today and everybody who is not in my box today that are behind the scenes. 

“They are equally important so this trophy is for everyone.”
