Alexander Zverev Beats Carlos Alcaraz To Reach Paris Semi-finals

Third seed Alexander Zverev reached the French Open semi-finals for the second successive year after surviving teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz's fightback.

Continuing his quest for a maiden Grand Slam title, Zverev won 6-4 6-4 4-6 7-6 (9-7) against the sixth seed.

The German, 25, served strongly and was superb from the back of court, but 19-year-old Alcaraz made too many errors.

A semi-final against 13-time winner Rafael Nadal, who beat defending champion Novak Djokovic, awaits Zverev.

"I knew I had to play my absolute best tennis from the start," said Zverev.

"He is an incredible player and I told him at the net he will win this tournament many times, not just once.

"I hope I can win it once before he does - and starts beating us all."
