Jordan Thompson reaches third ATP Final

Jordan Thompson of Sydney, Australia is in his third career ATP Final on Saturday. The 29-year-old right-hander is in the final of the Los Cabos Open after delivering one of the biggest upsets of his professional tennis career.

in the semifinals on Friday, Thompson came through with a shocking 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 win over reigning Olympic gold medalist and 2020 United States Open finalist Alexander Zverev of Germany. In the the third set tiebreak, Thompson dominated Zverev, winning 7-2. A major reason for Thompson’s victory was resiliency. He won the match on his seventh match point.

This was the fourth time in Thompson’s career he beat a top-10 player, and second time he has beaten Zverev. Thompson also beat Zverev 6-3, 6-4 in the first round of the 2023 Japan Open. Thompson also beat former world number one Andy Murray of Great Britain 7-6, 6-2, in the first round of Queen’s in 2017, and Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 in the second round of Indian Wells in 2023.

Thompson’s two previous ATP Finals came at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships in the Netherlands. In 2019, Thompson lost to Adrian Mannarino of France, 7-6, 6-3. Then in 2023, Thompson lost to Tallon Griekspoor of the Netherlands, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3.

In the final, Thompson will face three-time grand slam finalist Casper Ruud of Norway. Ruud has reached the grand slam final of the 2022 and 2023 French Open, and the 2022 United States Open. Head-to-head, Ruud has beaten Thompson in two of three meetings. Rudd beat Thompson in the first round of the 2018 French Open (6-1, 6-4, 2-6, 4-6, 6-3), and the first round of the 2021 Australian Open (6-3, 6-3, 2-1 ret.), and Thompson beat Ruud in the first round of the 2021 Wimbledon (7-6, 7-6, 2-6, 2-6, 6-2).
