Berlin - Austria's Dominic Thiem, ranked 15th in the world, reached the final of Munich's ATP tournament by fighting back to beat German teenager Alexander Zverev in Saturday's semi-final.

Having lost the first set, Thiem recovered to seal a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 on clay in the Bavarian capital to end the run of 19-year-old Zverev.

In Sunday's final, Thiem will face the winner of Saturday's other semi-final when Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, who won the Munich title in 2007 and 2012 but lost to Britain's Andy Murray in last year's final, meets Italy's Fabio Fognini.
