Alexander Zverev had to work hard on the night from Friday to Saturday, to reach the first Grand Slam final of his career. 3: 6, 2: 6, 6: 3, 6: 4, 6: 3 he finally won his US Open semi-final against Spaniard Pablo CarreƱo Busta. Now the currently best German tennis player will meet Dominic Thiem on Sunday (10 p.m. / in the live ticker on Chillreport). The number two-seeded Austrian made short work of last year’s finalist Daniil Medwedes and won the match in three sets (6: 2, 7: 6, 7: 6).

So there is now a final among friends at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. Because Zverev and Thiem have had a good friendship since their early days on the ATP tour – which of course has to take a break on the field. The top two ten players have met nine times. If you believe the statistics, the US Open final on Sunday should be a clear one: Thiem leads in a direct comparison against Zverev with 7-2 wins. But there are also facts that should motivate Zverev: the final balance in the direct duels between the two tennis aces is in balance and Thiem has not won any of his three Grand Slam finals so far.
