Flushing Meadows New York, USA
We have reached the final of the 2020 ATP US Open in New York City. The 2020 Men’s US Open title will be competed for by Alexander Zverev from Germany and Dominic Thiem from Austria.
Alexander Zverev had to battle for 5 sets to win his semi final tie against Pablo Carreño Busta. It was a poor start to that match for Zverev as he lost the opening 2 sets but the German fought back strongly to win the final 3 sets and earn his first appearance at a Grand Slam final. During the win, Alexander Zverev showed glimpses of his best tennis but the German made many mistakes and it is essential he is more consistent in the final as the level of competition is set to be much greater. It has been a relatively kind tournament for Alexander Zverev due to a friendly draw but the German is expected to be fully challenged in this match.
On the other side of the coin, Dominic Thiem was exceptional during the semifinal clash where he defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. During the win, Dominic Theim was exceptional while receiving serve as the Austrian won around 40% of his return points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 4 occasions. It has been an exceptional tournament for Dominic Thiem and the Austrian looks well set to challenge for the title in this match.
Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem have played each other 9 times in the past with Thiem winning on 7 occasions and Zverev winning twice. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Australian Open where Dominic Thiem won in 4 sets.
Free Tennis Pick:
This should be an exceptional match as we will witness two of the best players in the world face each other. With that in mind, I am going to pick Dominic Thiem to win this match. Thiem has the experience of playing Grand Slam finals and the Austrian has an outstanding head-to-head record against Zverev. This should be a close match but I see Thiem being too strong.
