Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev, US Open 2020 final

I do believe that I will be a Grand Slam champion at some point Zverev after US Open loss

Austria's Dominic Thiem has come from two sets down to beat Germany's Alexander Zverev in an epic US Open men's singles final.

The 27-year-old, beaten in his first three Grand Slam finals, came into the showpiece match as the favourite and having dropped only one set en route to the final, but his sluggish start to the match nearly cost him the title he so cherished.

Thiem and Zverev went to a tiebreaker in the final set.

Zverev, 23, smashed four aces and 16 winners in the first set as he displayed an impressive serve and volley game to take a 1-0 lead in just 30 minutes.

A limping Thiem trailed 5-3 in a high-quality decider but summoned some incredible baseline winners to take it into a nerve-jangling tiebreak.

While second-seed Thiem overcame last year's finalist Daniil Medvedev 6-2, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (5) in the semifinal, Zverev came back from two sets to love down to beat Pablo Carreno Busta 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3.

Vaccine trials in United Kingdom to resume: AstraZeneca

He also becomes the first new Grand Slam champion since Croatian Marin Cilic won at Flushing Meadows in 2014.

The German was helped by some sloppy serving from Thiem, who hit three double faults as he was broken twice, in games three and seven. And he fell as the first Austrian victor of a Grand Slam since Thomas Muster bested Michael Chang at the 1995 French Open final.

Zverev's 15th double fault gave Thiem a 5-3 lead in the tie-break before the latter squandered two match points, including one from a weak second serve from the German.

Zverev roared into a two-set lead with the Austrian not able to establish himself at all, but that was just the beginning of the drama. "We both deserved it ..." He took a medical timeout before it was his turn to serve for the championship.

He won the title on his third and collapsed to the court with his head in his hands.

For Zverev this was a heartbreaking defeat after he squandered an opportunity to serve out for the title in the deciding set having already let a two-set lead slip, but it was a fearless performance nonetheless from the 23-year-old.
