Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz beat Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman in two dazzling sets to win the Rio Open final, becoming the youngest ATP 500-level champion ever.

Looking faster, stronger and fitter than his 29-year-old opponent, Alcaraz, 18, put on a clay-court master class in Rio de Janeiro, winning 6-4, 6-2 in a match likely to bolster his reputation as the “New Nadal”.

Elsewhere, Britain’s Cameron Norrie captured his third career ATP title, outlasting American Reilly Opelka 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/4) in the ATP Delray Beach Open final.

In Marseille, Russian Andrey Rublev won the ATP tournament in France, beating Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada 7-5, 7-6 (7/4) in the final.
