It all comes down to a single game. The one that will play the Austrian Dominic Thiem (2nd favorite) and the German Alexander Zverev (5th). The final of the US Open 2020 has its two contenders and will have several seasonings on the statistical side that will make this summit meeting even more exciting.
On the one hand, Thiem reaches his fourth final of a big tournament (Roland Garros 2018 and 2019; Australia 2020) while it will be the first definition for the “Little Prince”.
Whoever wins the definition at the Arthur Ashe Stadium (this Sunday from 4:30 pm in Argentina on ESPN and ESPN Play) will become the first player born in the 90s to lift this kind of trophy.
Thiem will also be the first Austrian to contest a final at Flushing Meadows while Zverev will be the first German to do so since Michael Stich fell into the final in the 1994 edition against Andre Agassi.
The last match in this series of two tournaments in New York (Cincinnati Masters 1000-US Open) will be the 10th meeting between the two, with a balance of seven wins over two losses in favor of the world number three.
In Grand Slams they met twice (Roland Garros 2016 and Australia 2020), both with victories for Thiem. The next? For the glory.
