By John

Alexander Zverev triumphed in Rome. The 27-year-old German won the men's singles at the Internazionali d'Italia, ATP Masters 1000 tournament, with over nine million euros in prize money, staged on the red clay of the Foro Italico. The Hamburg-born tennis player, already winner in the capital in 2017, won today's final in two sets. Zverev, world number 5 and third force on the draw, beat the Chilean Nicolas Jarrynumber 24 in the international ranking and 21st seeded in the seeding, with a score of 6-4 7-5.

“Here I won my first 1000 of my career and I am now back to win a Masters 1000 after the injury in 2022 (the bad ankle crash at Roland Garros, ed.). I am very happy: here in Rome I always find myself well, I'm tied to this tournament. Now the goal is Roland Garros: I have to enjoy this success first, then I'll think about the Paris tournament.” Thus Alexander Zverev after today's victory at the Italian Internationals.
