Rafael Nadal overcame Alexander Zverev to record his eighth Italian Open with a 6-1 1-6 6-3 score.
Nadal won the first set Zverev before the German came back to win the second set. However, the Spaniard turned the match around following a lengthy rain delay and closed out a 6-1 1-6 6-3 victory.
The win will see Nadal regain his number one spot from tennis legend Roger Federer who took back the spot after Nadal lost to Dominic Thiem at the Madrid Masters last week.
