After a thrilling Women’s final, it is time to shift focus to the men’s draw, one that has seen a lot of churn over the course of the two weeks of this competition. This is no ordinary final. For the first time since US Open 2016, two players aside from the Big-3 (Novak
Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal) will collide in a Major final. And true to say, the two players who have in this phase come closest to challenging the exalted position of those three tennis giants, clash against each other in the US Open final 2020. It is Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev, and one of these players will bag a first Grand Slam title.
Thiem entered the competition after a gut-wrenching second-round defeat to Karen Kachanov in the Cincinnati Masters. He seemed rusty in the first two rounds as well, but ever since the Austrian has just taken his game to another level. This can be gauged from the fact that barring one against the inimitable Maric Cilic in the third round, he hasn’t conceded a
single set this US Open. The semi-final against Daniil Medvedev showed how the Austrian has a proclivity for peaking at the right moments, winning two very high-voltage tie-breaks. His serves have been very accurate, and his ability to chip-and-charge coupled with a sensational one-handed backhand make him a clear favourite entering this contest.
In complete contrast to Thiem’s near-perfect campaign, Alexander Zverev has blown hot and cold in the Flushing Meadows. He has conceded a set in nearly every match (barring round of 16). In the semi-finals, the German mounted a spirited comeback after being two sets down against Pablo Carreno Busto. His serves have not been as penetrative, and he has been very patchy with his shots from the base-line.
His indomitable spirit and sheer mental toughness have carried him through to the final, and he will bank on those reserves to win here as well. He can’t afford any blips in this game, however, as Thiem will certainly drive home the advantage in such situations. Competing in his first-ever Grand Slam final, Zverev will have to battle nerves, and knowing his tenacity, he can certainly pose a major challenge to Dominic Thiem.
With a first major in sight, both players will enter the Arthur Ashe Stadium full of hopes and are sure to put up a spirited display, much in keeping with the larger style of play in this competition. An intriguing final, with many records at stake, is sure to keep tennis fans across the world captivated.
