*Beats Zverev in five sets
Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to reach a Grand Slam final after holding off Alexander Zverev’s fightback from two sets down in a tense French Open semi-final.
After losing all three of his previous Grand Slam semi-finals, fifth seed Tsitsipas won 6-3 6-3 4-6 4-6 6-3, reports the BBC.
Tsitsipas rediscovered his level in the decider, halting Zverev but missing four match points before serving out.
The 22-year-old faces Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s final.
Serbian top seed Djokovic and long-time Spanish rival Nadal, who is the defending champion and looking for a 14th French Open title, meet later on Friday.
