Zverev, 30, hit an ace on his first match point to wrap up the title in 97 minutes.

His victory meant he and world number three Alexander are the first brothers to win a singles event in the same season since 1989.

Zverev is set to face France’s Pierre-Hugues Herbert when Wimbledon begins on Monday, while Lacko will play Benjamin Bonzi.
