Thiem Beats Ceccinato In French Open Semis To Qualify For Maiden Grand Slam Final

Austrian seventh seed Dominic Thiem is through to his first ever Grand Slam final following his straight sets victory over unseeded Italian Marco Ceccinato in their semi-final clash.

Thiem, 24, defeated Novak Djokovic’s conqueror in the quarters 7-5 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to book his spot in Sunday’s French Open final.

He battled his way through the first two sets before clinching the third in 21 minutes thus setting up a final meeting with either Spain’s Rafael Nadal or Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro.
