2020 US Open Men’s Final Results: Dominic Thiem defeated Alexander Zverev for first Grand Slam title


Dominic Thiem defeated Alexander Zverev 2–6, 4–6, 6–4, 6–3, 7–6 (8–6) in a five-set match to win the men’s singles title at the 2020 US Open. It was Thiem’s ​​first Grand Slam title. For the first time in six years, he was the Grand Slam champion for the first time at the US Open.

Thiem bounced back from losing the first two sets to win three straight sets, including a fifth set tiebreaker to win the match. This is the fourth consecutive year that the US Open has gone the distance in the men’s singles final.

After Novak Djokovic defaulted in the fourth round, all three members of the men’s tennis ‘Big Three’ were missing from the second zone of the 2020 US Open. Roger Federer missed this year’s US Open due to continued rehab for a previous knee operation, while Rafael Nadal chose to opt-out due to concerns over coronoviruses.

This not only paved the way for becoming champion for the first time, but his absence also signaled the future of men’s tennis. With the 27-year-old Thiem winning the US Open, it may well serve as the beginning of a new era. Unlike the women’s tennis game, which has seen many first-time slam winners in recent years, the men’s game is waiting to see a new name for the challenge.
