Zverev will face Dominic Thiem in the final after the Austrian, who beat Rafael Nadal in the quarters, claimed a 6-4, 6-1 win over South African Kevin Anderson.
“It’s obviously a great final for kind of the future ahead,” the German said ahead of the final.
“We played five times against each other when he was already top 10 and I was more in the developing stage still. Obviously he’s leading the head-to-head.
“But I’m playing quite well; so is he. Hopefully it will be another entertaining one.”
