rivals will write their name in the history books? Will it be Zverev, the 23-year-old German who’s had so much expected of him since his kthrough in 2018? Or will it be Thiem, the man seen as the biggest threat to the Big Three since Andy Murray? You can follow our guide to watch a Thiem vs Zverev live stream and catch the 2020 US Open men’s final online from anywhere.
Thiem steamrollered Daniil Medvedev in his semi-final, beating the 2019 US Open runner-up in straight sets despite having to face two set points himself. It was the latest in a series of formidable performances, which have seen the Austrian drop just one set so far at Flushing Meadows.
Zverev had a much more difficult time of things against the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, having had to recover from two sets down for the first time in his career. The world No. 7 was his own worst enemy early on, making 36 unforced errors in the first two sets and hitting eight double faults, but he kept his head and worked his way back into the contest with a brilliant first serve and steady court play.
Thiem’s form makes him the favourite, and their head-to-head is 7-2 in the Austrian’s favour. Zverev has been able to get away with making a slow start almost throughout the tournament, but he might not be able to afford to today.
It’s the youngest men’s singles Grand Slam final in eight years, and it’ll end in the realisation of a dream for one, and heartbreak for the other. You can read on as we explain how to watch Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev online today and get a US Open live stream wherever you are in the world.
