The Zverev vs Alcaraz live stream is now underway and it was Carlos Alcaraz who wrapped up the opening set 6-3. The Spaniard showed plenty of variety as he matched power with a delicate touch to assert his dominance over Alexander Zverev. 

'Sasha' Zverev fought back in the second set and took it 6-2 after claiming two breaks of serve. The German was trailing 5-2 in the third set but managed to turn it around and win it 7-5 thanks to some huge hitting and some fantastic serving. 

Alcaraz fought back in the fourth set and took it 6-1 to force a decider. We're now going to have a one-set shootout. Will it be Alcaraz or Zverev that triumphs?

Carlos Alcaraz showed plenty of resilience and an incredible range of shot-making as he came through an engrossing semi-final against incoming world number one Jannik Sinner. The Spaniard was able to stay relaxed and hit some stunning winners at important times and will now have the opportunity to complete three legs of a career Grand Slam, having already won the US Open title in 2022 and Wimbledon last year. 

The third seed is yet to lose when he has reached a Slam final but is set for a huge test against Alexander Zverev. The German has always been a threat on clay, as shown with his recent victory at the Italian Open, and was finally able to end his semi-final hoodoo after defeating an unwell Casper Ruud in four sets.

The 27-year-old had lost in the last four at the clay-court major in 2021, 2022 and 2023 but showed no signs of nerves as he produced a composed performance against the Norwegian. 

Zverev has won five of his nine encounters against Alcaraz, including victory in the quarter-finals at this year’s Australian Open. Can he extend his record and win a maiden Grand Slam title? Or will Alcaraz win a third major and first French Open crown?
