Juan Martin Del Potro will face Kevin Anderson in the Mexico Open final.

The world number 9 beat German Alexander Zverev 6-4 6-2 in his semi-final as he chases his first ATP title of the season.

“It is amazing for me,” Del Potro told TennisTV. “I have been playing good tennis this week, but there is still one more step to go.”

Anderson, meanwhile, defeated Jared Donaldson 6-3 4-6 6-3.

“Hopefully I can play even better than tonight, because Anderson is a great player and he is playing so good,” Del Potro added.

“We [have] never played in a final, so it is going to be a big challenge for me. But, anything can happen, it is the final and I am just so gracious.”
