Zverev crushes Thiem to win Madrid final

ATP Madrid- Friday schedule Nadal Thiem headlines the day

It will be the fourth final of this type for Hamburg.

"Rafa is the favourite, no matter where he plays, on a clay court", Zverev said. "Obviously, it's not easy to play Denis". Sugita's clay data is bad too, and his random run in Barcelona previous year is looking more and more like a flash in the pan, having lost all six matches on the surface after that display.

"It gave me a huge boost of confidence", Thiem said of his Madrid quarter-final victory.But he didn't walk into Caja Magica on Saturday and expect Kevin Anderson to give him the semi-final.

Thiem, the runner-up to the great Spaniard in the 2017 Madrid final, had been the last player to defeat Nadal on clay at the 2017 Italian Open in Rome-357 days ago.

It was Zverev's second win in six meetings with Thiem. "That's for sure. But in the same time, it was a completely different matchup today.

To beat him [6-4, 6-2], it's a very good result". Was a little bit exhausted in Monte-Carlo, but still got to the semifinals, so.

"I was keeping my level up from yesterday, so that was a great thing".

In Rome, the Rome Masters gets started today with five first-round matches and a number of qualifiers also taking place. "I don't know if that's a tough player or not", Nadal said. "Almost everything worked out".

Anderson is not a natural clay court performer, and didn't really have an answer for a skilled exponent on the surface like Thiem.

Serving to close out the first set, Zverev trailed 0-30 but used his big serve to force deuce and finally closed out the point when Thiem's return sailed long. "To be honest, I thought that I was pretty far away before this week started", Thiem said. "Now, I'm in the final again, which is fantastic to me". He won the Barcelona Open and the Monte Carlo Masters convincingly. The four who have achieved the feat are Nadal, Switzerland's Roger Federer, Serbia's Novak Djokovic and the United Kingdom's Andy Murray.

"With Zverev's three-to-five set record at majors, there is still a big asterisk there in everything he has accomplished, so I don't think his tennis at the moment is quite good enough at the French Open".
