Alexander Zverev and Alejandro Tabilo go head to head on Friday for a place in this year’s Italian Open final.

We are set for an intriguing battle at Foro Italico between the former champion and first-time ATP Masters semi-finalst.

Zverev, who won this event in 2017, is yet to drop a set this fortnight on the way to reaching his fourth semi-final of the season.

Having also reached this stage at the Australian Open, as well as in Miami and Los Cabos, the German is now bidding for his first final of 2024.

Meanwhile, Tabilo is already in this year’s winner’s circle, having triumphed in Auckland and captured a Challenger Tour title in Aix-en-Provence.

Also a runner-up in Santiago and Bucharest semi-finalist this term, he is only the third Chilean in the Open Era to reach the last four of this event after Marcelo Rios and Fernando Gonzalez.

The match gets under way at around 2.30pm BST (3.30pm local time) on Friday and will be contested over the best of three sets on Center Court.

Alexander Zverev v Alejandro Tabilo prediction

It has been a fortnight to remember for Tabilo, who is yet to drop a set and has already taken out Novak Djokovic and Karen Khachanov.

Although, he now finds himself in uncharted territory in ATP Masters events, which could subsequently benefit Zverev.

The sixth seed is on a mission in the Italian capital, epitomised by the way he recovered from a heavy fall early on to run out a commanding winner over Taylor Fritz in the quarter-finals.
