Zverev, Thiem To Fight For Masters 1000 Glory

Anderson made it to his first Masters 1000 semi-final, on his 11 attempt, with a 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3 victory over Dusan Lajovic on Friday.

Dominic Thiem followed up his sensational victory over world number one Rafael Nadal by easing past Kevin Anderson 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to reach the Madrid Masters final.

Alexander Zverev won his third Masters 1000 title as he trounced Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-4 to win the Madrid Open on Sunday.

"We played five times against each other when he was already top 10 and I was more in the developing stage still".

Asked if he feels at that level, the German replied: 'Rafa is the favorite no matter where he plays on a clay court. Zverev also won four consecutive times last week at the BMW Open by FWU in Munich to celebrate his first title of the year. Zverev won 79 percent of his total service points for the match and won 71 percent of his return points in the second set.

Zverev has always been marked out as a future star of the men's game and his victory over Thiem suggests the German can be a major threat at the French Open later this month. Thiem will need to maintain his level if he is to claim a first Masters 1000 title on Sunday although her does boast a 4-1 career head-to-head lead over Zverev.

Zarif embarks on journey to save nuclear deal by first visiting China
Add that trump intends to immediately impose sanctions against any foreign companies that will do business with Iran. European signatories have undertaken a flurry of diplomatic activity to try to protect trade deals worth billions.

Shapovalov initially held his own in the opener, but Zverev broke in front in the ninth game to give himself the opportunity to serve for the set.

Interesting starts for (15) Berdych vs. Shapovalov who is finding his footing on clay, (6) Thiem vs. the Fognini-Monfils victor, (3) Dimitrov vs. Nishikori, (13) Sock vs. the former French runner-up Ferrer, the struggling (11) Djokovic vs.

"But, you know, after 14 years being in the position that I have been fighting for, important things, I can lose, I can win". He was adamant the result of Rome won't affect his preparation for the French Open.

"Of course I am disappointed", Nadal said. Thiem had never beaten Anderson in their six prior FedEx ATP Head2Head matchups, but they had never played on clay, Thiem's surface of choice. "Almost everything worked out".

The final match in Italy that I want to discuss is David Ferrer against Jack Sock.

'I think, overall, you know, playing best of five sets against him, also, there on Philippe Chatrier Court, I think the court is really big.
