Italian Open: Rafael Nadal wins eighth title, reclaims No.1 ranking with win over Alexander Zverev


RAFAEL Nadal is right back where he wants to be heading into the French Open.

Alex Zverev is in a good place entering Roland Garros, too.

Nadal came out on top in a matchup of this year’s top two clay-court players on Sunday, beating defending champion Zverev 6-1 1-6 6-3 to win a record- extending eighth Italian Open title.

Coming a week after a loss in the Madrid Open quarterfinals to Dominic Thiem, Nadal has his confidence — and his No.1 ranking — back entering the year’s second grand slam in Paris, which starts next Sunday.

“It’s been an amazing week,” Nadal said.
