French Open 2021: Alexander Zverev wins & will face Stefanos Tsitsipas or Daniil Medvedev

German sixth seed Alexander Zverev reached the semi-finals of the French Open for the first time with a straight-set win against Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.

Zverev, 24, won 6-4 6-1 6-1 to set up a meeting in the last four with Stefanos Tsitsipas or Daniil Medvedev.

Greek fifth seed Tsitsipas meets world number two Medvedev later on Tuesday.

Like Zverev, the pair are also aiming to win their first Grand Slam by lifting the title in Paris on Sunday.

"It is very nice to be in the semi-finals but just being there doesn't satisfy me," Zverev said.
