Alejandro Davidovich Fokina advanced to his first Masters 1000 final at Monte-Carlo on Saturday after beating Grigor Dimitrov in three sets.

The second semifinal between Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas was highly anticipated but turned out to be a one-sided affair as the Greek won in straight sets to keep his title defense alive.

In the men's doubles event, top seeds Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury reached the final after surviving a scare from Rohan Bopanna and Jamie Murray. The duo will take on sixth seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, who beat Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer in the other semifinal.

Here are the results from Day 7 of the Monte-Carlo Masters:
