ROME — 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.

It was a second title in Rome for Mr. Zverev 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 Mr. Zverev after the German won 95 percent of his first-serve points. Reuters
