Overview

Rafael Nadal faces Dominic Thiem in the final of the Madrid Open as he looks to win his third title of the calendar year following wins in Monte-Carlo and Barcelona.

The 14-time Grand Slam winner defeated Fabio Fognini, Nick Kyrgios, David Goffin and Novak Djokovic en route to the final as he is currently 14-0 since the clay-court season began.

One more win would put the Spaniard in perfect position as the favourite for the upcoming French Open, which Nadal last won in 2014.

As for world number nine Thiem, he defeated Jared Donaldson, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Ćorić and Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas to reach his first Masters 1000 final.

The 23-year-old Austrian is looking for his second title of 2017 following his win in Rio de Janeiro, and will be hoping to end a two-match losing run against his Madrid final opponent.
