Alexander Zverev is one match away from his first ATP Masters 1000 title after overcoming John Isner 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 6-1 in the Internazionali BNL d'Italia semi-finals.

Later Friday, seven-time champion Rafael Nadal, seeded fourth, meets Austrian eighth seed Dominic Thiem in a repeat of last week's Madrid Masters final, won by the Spanish clay court king.
