The focus is on Paris for sure, but let me enjoy this one for a few days first,” Zverev said. “Rome is a very special place for me. Obviously, it’s a very, very special week.

Chilean Nicolas Jarry, competing in his first final at this level, had a remarkable run, defeating sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals. Despite his efforts, Jarry struggled to counter Zverev’s powerful serve, with the German landing 80% of his first serves.

He’s playing huge,” Zverev remarked about Jarry, who also overcame America’s Tommy Paul to reach the final. “I can see by the opponents he has beaten this week that he is playing incredible tennis. I told him that if he carries on playing like that, then he is going to have many more titles at this level.”
