French Open : Tsitsipas To Face Zverev In The Semi-Finals

Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas showed his superior clay-court quality against Russian rival Daniil Medvedev to reach the French Open Semi-Finals.

Medvedev opted for an underarm serve on match point - which Tsitsipas Dubbed "a very millennial shot" after putting it away to seal a 6-3, 7-6, 7-5 win.

Tsitsipas, 22, faces German sixth seed Alexander Zverev in the last four.

Zverev advanced to the last four for the first time with a 6-4 6-1 6-1 win over Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who later said he had been hampered by a back injury.

Like Tsitsipas, Zverev is also aiming to win his first grand slam by lifting the title in Paris on sunday.
