Dominic Thiem and Karen Khachanov will fight it out for a spot in the Paris Masters final on Saturday.

Thiem was forced to fight back from a set down against defending champion Jack Sock before eventually coming through it 4-6 6-4 6-4.

“I’m in the semi-finals of a Masters 1000 only for the fourth time. And especially here it means a lot for me because I didn’t do too well in the previous years in this part of the season,” said world number eight Thiem.

“So it’s something really special to reach the semi-finals here. And fighting-wise all three matches were great. And also playing-wise it was really good.”

Khachanov, meanwhile, stunned a below-par Alexander Zverev 6-1 6-2.
