Stefanos Tsitsipas is through to the Rome Open final for the first time, beating Alexander Zverev 4-6 6-3 6-3.
The 23-year-old Greek overcame a perfect start from Germany’s Zverev to reach a fifth Masters final, and his fourth on clay.
Tsitsipas will face the winner of the second semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Casper Ruud.
Djokovic will be bidding to be the fifth player to earn 1,000 tour-level wins if he defeats Ruud.
This was the third time Tsitsipas and Zverev had met in a Masters semi-final this season, with the Greek losing to the German last week in Madrid.
