While Dominic Thiem reaches his first US Open Final and marks his name as the first Austrian to hit the singles final in overlapping meadows and he managed to accomplish the goal in a straight way, Serena Williams’s route to the US Open 2020 Women’s semifinals was full of complexities. However, she put all the efforts and battled on the court to name three straight three-set wins.
For instance, Thiem beat Daniil Medvedev 6-2, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (5) in a game of two hours and 55 minutes. Earlier in US Open 2020, Alexander Zverev made history with his first grand slam final with a magnificent 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, and 6-3 win over Pablo Carreno Busta. In short, the US Open 2020 was stunning and would be in memories forever. Also, it was a shocking season for the German’s career that he made an impressive comeback from two sets down for the very first time in history.
In this blog, we will discuss US Open Tennis 2020 Results, highlights and final scores that may tempt you. Both Alexander Zverev and Pablo Carreno Busta are eyeing their first Grand Slam final and this is a second semi-final for both of them. While this is a second US Open semi-final for Carreno Busta, it’s a first in Flushing Meadows for Zverev. In the match-up between Medvedev and Thiem, both are Grand Slam finalists. While Thiem is a two-time French Open finalist, Medvedev played Rafae Nadal in the final of the US Open last year.
A tight service game from Dominic Thiem, reminiscent of the first service game of the second set when Medvedev broke him. However, he fended off four break points to get himself to advantage with a forehand from close to the net but Medvedev got it back to deuce with a forehand shot close to the line. Medvedev got to another breakpoint which Thiem fended off with some huge forehands. He then got to advantage with a big serve followed by a combination of serve out wide and forehand volley to close out the game. HUGE hold! Will Medvedev Rue miss those five breakpoints and will that affect his next service game?
Thiem got himself till deuce after Medvedev was 30-0 up but could not go any further as Medvedev stayed locked in, got the next two points and increased his lead.
An easy hold for Thiem this one. Post his service break in the very first game of the second set, the Austrian has been solid and has not really allowed Medvedev into his service games. A few minutes of concentration drop and Thiem is having to chase this second set.
For the first time in 16 years, the men’s semi-finals at a Grand Slam tournament will be contested without any of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic participating. Instead, the matchups at Flushing Meadows on Friday will feature a quartet of 20-somethings all seeking a first major championship. The eventual champion will be the first man born in the 1990s to grab a Grand Slam trophy: Zverev is 23, Medvedev is 24, Thiem turned 27 a week ago, and Carreo Busta is 29.
