Sport: Ruud and Zverev also met in the semifinals of the tournament last year. Then Ruud won in straight sets.

It is 2-2 in matches between the Norwegian and the German. Ruud has been the winner of the last two.

Ruud was initially supposed to face Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals on Wednesday, but the Serbian withdrew due to injury, and the Norwegian went on to walkover.

Zverev is the fourth seed in the tournament and has, among other things, knocked out Rafael Nadal on the way to the semi-finals. In the fourth round, he got past Danish Holger Rune over five sets.

The German reached the semi-finals after winning 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) and 6-4.

Wednesday’s match was up and running when the second set went to a tiebreak. Zverev proved to be the strongest and played his way up to 2-0 in the set. It secured him the necessary edge in the match.
