What devastating winners forehands! Dominic Thiem hit three amazing winners in a row in the US Open final won against Alexander Zverev (you can watch them in the video below). He did it in the fifth set, with the score of 4-5.
Thiem is the new US Open 2020 champion, the first Slam winner other than Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic from Flushing Meadows 2016, the first tennis player born after 1990 to win the men's single of a Slam event.
He did catch two sets of disadvantage to German Alexander Zverev, who, up to the middle of the third set, seemed destined to win the title. Instead, the 140th edition of the most atypical Slam ever, amidst health bubbles, disqualifications and many other twists, ends with an epochal but necessary change of guard between Old Gen and Middle Gen.
