ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Second-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany advanced to the Mexico Open final Friday night, beating Britain's Cameron Norrie 7-6 (0), 6-3 in the hardcourt event at The Princess Mundo Imperial.
Ranked No. 3 in the world, Zverev will face Nick Kyrgios of Australia. Kyrgios beat third-seeded John Isner of the United States 7-5, 5-7, 7-6 (7) in the late semifinal.
Zverev has 10 ATP Tour titles, winning five times in 2017 and four last year. Kyrgios has four career titles. He beat top-seeded Rafael Nadal in the second round.
Nick Kyrgios' run to the Acapulco final has garnered the headlines—he's beaten Nadal, Wawrinka and Isner—but Alexander Zverev, the Aussie's final opponent, has made it through the draw without dropping a set (oh, and he's also in the doubles final): https://t.co/Z2coX0bW7e pic.twitter.com/XJL9xgMxTN— TENNIS.com (@Tennis) March 2, 2019
