An intriguing fourth ATP Masters 1000 final of the 2018 season awaits on Sunday as second seed Alexander Zverev and fifth seed Dominic Thiem square off for the Madrid silverware. Zverev has recapture his best form after a slow start to the season and is looking in fine form in the Spanish capital, advancing to the title match without dropping a set, while Thiem has been in brilliant touch in his last two matches, becoming the first man to beat the King of Clay - Rafael Nadal - in a completed match in 2018, ending the Spaniard’s 21-match and 50-set winning streak on the clay in the process before snapping a six-match losing run against Kevin Anderson in the semi-finals.

Zverev, who has won 16 of his last 18 matches, is in a rich vein of form as he attempts to win a third Masters 1000 title, adding to the trophies he collected in Rome and Montreal last season, while Thiem is hoping to win his first Masters crown, with his only other final appearance at this level coming at this very tournament 12 months ago, when he went down to Nadal.


It promises to be a spectacular final showpiece as another thrilling Mutua Madrid Open comes to a dramatic climax on Sunday night - but who will emerge triumphant with the silverware? We go over all the numbers, stats and quotes ahead of the final below.

Quotes ahead of Madrid Masters final


Alexander Zverev

“It’s a very tough match,” Zverev said of facing Thiem. “Obviously I played him when I was very young when I was in a developing stage and he was already top 10. He’s playing great tennis, beating Rafa [Nadal] on clay, so it should be another entertaining final.”

Dominic Thiem

"I will try everything on Sunday. A Masters 1000 title would mean a lot to me because it's obviously really tough to win one," Thiem said. "To be honest, I thought also myself that I was pretty far away before this week started. Now I'm in the finals again, which is amazing for me."
