Fourth seed Casper Ruud reached the French Open final for the second year in a row with a 6-3 6-4 6-0 hammering of Alexander Zverev.
The German had made it back to the last four a year after leaving Philippe Chatrier in a wheelchair when he suffered an ankle injury against Rafael Nadal.
Zverev simply could not match Ruud, though, with the Norwegian having put aside a difficult start to the season to find top form again in Paris.

Ruud, who will bid for a first grand slam title in his third final, said: "I just went out there and tried to play without too many feelings, without thinking too much.
"Today I just played really well and from the beginning to the last point everything was sort of going my way.
"I'm just very happy to win this match. Hopefully third time can be the charm for me."
