Dominic Thiem powers past Kevin Anderson and into Madrid final

Dominic Thiem has built on his quarter-final win over Rafael Nadal to move into the final of the Madrid Open.

The Austrian overcame big-serving South African Kevin Anderson 6-4 6-2.

Thiem went into the match with a poor record against Anderson, but broke both of his opening service games to seize control of the match.

He’ll now face either Alexander Zverev or Denis Shapovalov in Sunday’s final as he seeks his 10th ATP title.
