It's Alexander Zverev the winner of the 2024 edition of the Internazionali d'Italia as far as the men's singles is concerned. The German asserted himself in the final over a tenacious Nicolas Jarry, who capitulated 6-4, 7-5 after giving everything in the final act. A total of 101 minutes are needed to complete the match, further demonstrating a tough match for Zverev.

In fact, the race toward the second final success at the Rome tournament for the German è was immediately more complex than the difference in ranking (No. 5 vs. No. 24, as of last Monday's update) and blazon (21 tournaments won by the German up to this morning, 3 those conquered by the Chilean) tells.

In fact, it took an acceleration in the 10th game to close out the set on 6-4 and give the 1-0 lead to the day's favorite.

The second fraction remains very balanced, and neither contender seems capable of even snatching a break.Zverev comes very close at 5-4, but wastes two match balls. It's enough to regroup in the next two games, però, to close the accounts: Jarry nullifies another match point on 6-5, but canò nothing on the next one, which the German exploits to win the final victory.

For Zverev therefore è victory number 22 at singles tournament level on the ATP circuit: in Rome he had already won in 2017, beating Novak Djokovic by surprise. The one won today è moreover, the first tournament won by 'Sascha' in 2024: in fact, he had not won since the Chengdu ATP 250 (late September 2023), when he got the better of Roman Safiullin in the final.
