Argentine Juan Martin del Potro dusted top seed German Alexander Zverev 6-4 6-2 in the semi-final of the Mexican Open to set up a final clash against South African Kevin Anderson who beat Jared Donaldson in an earlier match.
The 20-year-old Zverev, who had not lost a set in tournament, couldn’t find a way in, as del Potro dominated for 90 minutes.
The Argentine didn’t lose a single break point and hit only one double fault. He will next face South African Kevin Anderson for a first title of the year.
Kevin Anderson defeated American Jared Donaldson 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in their semi-final clash to reach his third final of the season.
The world no. 8 won the New York Open in February and also reached the final of the Maharashtra Open in Pune, India earlier in January.
