Amelie Mauresmo rallied to defend her Italian Open title Sunday with a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over eighth-seeded Patty Schnyder. After trading breaks early in the second set, Mauresmo became more aggressive after a verbal exchange with chair umpire Romano Grillotti. A linesman ruled Schnyder's serve was in, but Mauresmo didn't play the ball, circling a mark on the clay instead.
