Thiem, Zverev reach final after contrasting victories

Zverev erases 2-set hole will face Thiem in US Open final

Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev are set to clash in the final of the US Open 2020 men's singles.

Pressed on those comments and whether he had ever spoken to three-time slam champion Murray about overcoming slam final defeats, Thiem told reporters: "I never talked to anyone".

"I won't change my mindset at all".

"I know what Sascha is capable of".

Of the biggest names in the sport, Novak Djokovic was the only one left playing, but his run for the title was cut short after he was defaulted out of the competition fo hitting a lineswoman with a ball.

Thiem also demonstrated a keen understanding of his opponent's game, and leads 7-2 in their head-to-head, although he is taking nothing for granted.

The 27-year-old Austrian fought through an apparent ankle injury to top Medvedev 6-2, 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (7-5) and reach his first US Open final, where he will face his good friend Alexander Zverev.

The final place in the US Open is the first of their careers for both. Roger Federer was also forced to sit out this year's competition due to two knee surgeries.

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.

Paper Trail: T.I. has been charged for promoting fraudulent cryptocurrency
T.I. reportedly promoted FLiK to his followers on social media, and claimed to be a co-owner of the company, which he is not. The SEC also claims that T.I. was not alone in his actions, getting his friends to do the bidding as well.

The 23-year-old German began to play more freely at the beginning of the third set.

Thiem joked after his straight-sets semi-final victory over Daniil Medvedev that if he loses, he might have to contact a multiple-Slam victor who lost four finals before winning his first, and then going on to win two more. The three-time Grand Slam runner-up has looked sharp so far at Flushing Meadows and if Zverev is not at his best early on, he may build-up an unassailable lead before the German has any time to work his way into the contest; a fast start is crucial for the world number seven. Won all titles besides a major.

Alexander Zverev staged an extraordinary comeback in the first of Friday's two US Open semifinals, beating Pablo Carreno Busta 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"A great friendship, a great rivalry", Thiem said. At the same time, I try to think not too much about it.

Thiem showed that he's as mentally tough as he is fundamentally sound in his semifinal.

Having been two points away at 5-3 and 0-30 on the Thiem serve, he was broken serving for it and then missed five break points in the next game.

In a final that pits Thiem's thudding ground strokes and reliable backhand against Zverev's imposing yet inconsistent serves, it is no surprise that the Austrian should start favourite. He's won 86% of his service games. One of the greatest ones in last years.

Whilst Zverev is making his debut at this stage of a slam, the same can not be said for Thiem.

One more win will make Thiem an actual Slam champ.
