Dominic Thiem On US Open Final: 'The Chance Is Now'

US Open 2020 Men's Final Live Stream Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev

For one, going into the semifinals, "Four of Zverev's five matches had gone to four sets, and all of them were 1-1 after two", stated Bleacher Report. Thiem will be looking to avoid joining Murray and Lendl on the list of players who lost their first four Grand Slam finals.

He called his win over Medvedev "probably the toughest straight-set win I ever had" and his past tussles with Zverev have not been easy.

"I won't change my mindset at all", Thiem said".

The US Open 2020 final between Dominic Thiem and Alexander Thiem will be played at 01:30 AM IST on Monday.

But with Federer, Nadal and Wawrinka not travelling to NY in 2020, Novak Djokovic's fourth-round default and Cilic's loss in the third round, a new champion was guaranteed.

The tournament was also blown wide open by the disqualification of world number one and heavy favorite Novak Djokovic in the last 16 for hitting a line judge with the ball. The Grand Slam victor will not be named Federer, Nadal or Djokovic for the first time since Stan Wawrinka lifted the trophy in NY in 2016 and will be the first to debut his majors record since doing so, also at the US Open., Marin Cilic in 2014. With the thrilling victory, he has reached his first Grand Slam final. Also, the last match we had in Australia, we were both, I mean, really, really good. I'm happy that I gave myself pretty short time after that another chance with this win today.

Medvedev certainly looked the fresher during a third set that featured a passionate Thiem rant about his shoes after he slipped at a key moment.


Thiem admits there is "huge pressure", with both he and Zverev "working very hard since a long time" to enter the pantheon of Slam champions. Maybe they lacked the mindset as one's serve and other's reserve floundered. "It's so fast, so precise". "She played unbelievable. I could barely win a match when I came back".

First, there is the matter of Zverev's serve, which has often been shaky during the U.S. Open, as evidenced by his tournament-leading 49 double faults, but can be deadly, as evidenced by his tournament-leading 116 aces.

This year's US Open field has been depleted by the absence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

The US Open men's singles final between Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev will be played on Sunday night (technically Monday), September 13, 2020.

German fifth seed Alexander Zverev overcame a listless start to secure a thrilling 3-6 2-6 6-3 6-4 6-3 U.S. Open semi-final win over Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta on a poignant Friday in NY to reach his first Grand Slam final.

He also has, arguably, less to lose.

"I have a chance". I knew, look, it's a grand slam semi-final.
