U S OPEN 20: Thiem To Battle Zverev In Final
Tomorrow Sunday will be another scintillating moment for the lover of tennis as the final of the men's single for the ongoing tournament will be decided between two underdog players; Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev.
Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev used two different styles of victories to land spots in the 2020 US Open men's singles final.
Thiem used a straight-set win over Daniil Medvedev, which included two tiebreak victories, to advance to his second straight Grand Slam championship match.
Zverev earned his first-ever berth in a Grand Slam final by way of a comeback from two sets down against Pablo Carreno Busta.
Sunday's final inside Arthur Ashe Stadium will be the first Grand Slam championship that will not feature Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal since Wimbledon in 2016, when Andy Murray defeated Milos Raonic.

Thiem comes into Sunday's final in much better form than Zverev, as he dropped a single set in his first six matches.
The Austrian showed off his shot-making ability in a big match Friday, as he fended off the threat from the third-seeded Medvedev in a pair of tiebreaks.
