Alexander Zverev Form


Alexander Zverev has been in impressive form since the start of his Olympic campaign.

He made routine work of his first two opponents, beating Yen-Hsun Lu 6-1 6-3 before downing Daniel Elahi Galan 6-2 6-2.

Nikoloz Basilashvili put up more of a fight but was still beaten in straight sets, 6-4 7-6 (7-5).

Zverev then swept aside Jeremy Chardy, 6-4 6-1, in the semi-finals, but his run looked set to end in the semi-finals.

The 24-year-old German trailed world No 1 Novak Djokovic by a set and a break.

Zverev threw caution to the wind at that point, and staged a sensational fightback to win 1-6 6-3 6-1.

Karen Khachanov Form


Karen Khachanov is through to the final but it has not been an easy ride for the Russian.

He dropped the first set against Yoshihito Nishioka in the first round before fighting back to win 3-6 6-1 6-2.

James Duckworth was then beaten in straight sets, 7-5 6-1, but Khachanov found himself back in three-setters after that.

He beat Diego Sebastian Schartzman 6-1 2-6 6-1 in the last-16 before battling past Ugo Humber, 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-3 in the quarter-finals.

Khachanov did not have to go the distance to book his final berth though. He cruised past Pablo Carreno Busta, 6-3 6-3.
