Who is playing?
It’s been a strange sort of a men’s draw with the pull-out of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer for different reasons and Novak Djokovic’s default after he ended up hitting a lines-woman in his match against Pablo Carreno Busta.
With Stefanos Tsitsipas getting knocked out early, it turned out to be a four-way battle between Thiem, Zverev, Daniil Medvedev and Carreno Busta in the semifinal. Thiem proved to be too strong for Medvedev, winning their semifinal in straight sets while Zverev looked like he had muffed up his lines against Carreno Busta when he went a couple of sets down.
The German bounced back to win the next three and make his first ever Grand Slam final, having earlier entered the Australian Open semifinal this year. Thiem, on the other hand, has played in majors final, as recently as the Australian Open 2020 and even before that at the French Open.
When will the US Open 2020 Men’s Singles Final be played?
The Thiem-Zverev final will be played on Sunday, September 13 and expected to begin at around 4 pm local time, which is 9 pm BST. and 10 pm in Germany and Austria.

What are the bookmakers saying?
It’s interesting to note despite both players hunting for their maiden title, bookmakers have tipped Thiem to be a very strong favourite here with bet365 offering a rather short 1/4 for his win. Zverev starts off at 3/1 and one can almost be tempted to trade on that one.
Thiem continues to be shockingly short at 5/4 to win this in straight sets against a stodgy fighting Zverev.
If you think it would be a hard-fought encounter, you can also take a look at the number of games in the match, with over 37.5 games pegged at 5/6 for this one.
