Dominic Thiem won his first Grand Slam, defeating Alexander Zverev in the final, 2–6, 4–6, 6–4, 6–3, 7–6(8–6) to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2020 US Open. [1] He became the first player in the Open Era to win from two sets down in a US Open final, the first male player to win from two sets down at the US Open since Pancho Gonzales came back to defeat Ted Schroeder in 1949 and the first at any major event since Gastón Gaudio defeated Guillermo Coria in the 2004 French Open final. [2] [3] Both players served for the championship in the final set (Zverev at 5–3 and Thiem at 6–5), but both were broken at 30.

This was the first time in history that the US Open final was decided by a fifth set tie-break, 50 years after it was introduced in 1970. [4] Thiem's victory made him the first Austrian player to win a Grand Slam singles title since Thomas Muster at the 1995 French Open, the first male player born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam singles title and the first new Grand Slam tournament singles champion since Marin Čilić won the 2014 tournament. [4] The gap between Čilić and Thiem's titles was the longest between two new Grand Slam singles champions in the history of men's tennis, surpassing the previous longest gap between Juan Martín del Potro and Andy Murray respectively at the 2009 and 2012 editions of the US Open. Coincidentally, all four players would win their respective titles at the same major. This was also the first time in history that four consecutive Grand Slam singles finals were decided in the fifth set.

Despite his loss, Zverev became the youngest male finalist at a major championship since Novak Djokovic at the 2010 US Open. [4]

Rafael Nadal was the defending champion, but chose not to participate due to safety concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the short amount of time between the US Open and the rescheduled European clay season. [5] [6] [7] This marked the first time since the 1999 US Open that both Nadal and Roger Federer were absent from a Grand Slam tournament. [8]

There were no qualifiers this year. The ATP rankings valid on August 3 (being the rankings from March 16) were used to determine the main-draw entry list.

World No. 1 Djokovic was disqualified from the tournament during his fourth-round match against Pablo Carreño Busta. After being broken to trail 6–5 in the first set, Djokovic hit a ball towards the baseline before the commencement of the following game. This ball accidentally hit a lineswoman in the throat, causing her to choke, cough and fall to the ground. [9] Djokovic's unbeaten 26–0 2020 season, as well as his 29-match winning streak (extending back to the 2019 Davis Cup Finals), ended as a result. This confirmed that someone born after the 1980s would win a men's singles Grand Slam tournament and Djokovic became the first player to be defaulted from such a tournament since Stefan Koubek at the 2000 French Open. [10] Koubek threw his racket and hit a ballboy during his second-round match against Attila Sávolt, following three previous warnings for coaching and unsportsmanlike conduct.

Djokovic's ejection from the tournament ensured there would be a guaranteed first-time Grand Slam finalist in the top half of the draw. His disqualification also meant this would be the first Grand Slam tournament since the 2004 French Open to not feature either Djokovic, Federer or Nadal in the semifinals, the first tournament since the 2003 Wimbledon Championships in which none of the quarterfinalists had previously won a Grand Slam tournament and the first Grand Slam men's singles tournament not to have been won by Djokovic, Federer or Nadal since Stan Wawrinka defeated Djokovic in the 2016 US Open final. [11] This also guaranteed a maiden Grand Slam champion in men's singles for the first time since the 2014 tournament, when Čilić defeated fellow first-time finalist Kei Nishikori in straight sets. Additionally, it meant this would be the first Grand Slam won by someone under the age of 30 since the 2016 Wimbledon Championships. [12]

He is the second highest-ranked Austrian player in history, behind Thomas Muster. He has won 17 ATP Tour singles titles, including the 2020 US Open and the 2019 BNP Paribas Open. He won his maiden Grand Slam title, after three prior runner-up finishes, at the 2020 US Open, coming from two sets down to defeat German Alexander Zverev in the final. With the win, Thiem became the first male player born in the 1990s to claim a Grand Slam singles title.

Alexander Zverev German tennis player

Alexander "Sascha" Zverev is a German professional tennis player. He is the second-youngest player ranked in the top 10 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), and was a permanent fixture in the top 5 throughout 2018. Zverev was the champion at the 2018 ATP Finals, which had made him the youngest winner at the year-end championship in a decade. He is the only active player outside of the Big Four with three ATP Masters 1000 titles. Zverev has been praised by members of the Big Four as one of their potential successors. Rafael Nadal has called him a "clear possible future No. 1," while Novak Djokovic has said, "Hopefully, he can surpass me." Zverev has won 11 ATP titles in singles and two in doubles. He reached his first Grand Slam final at the 2020 US Open, where he lost to Dominic Thiem.

The 2016 ATP World Tour Finals (also known as the 2016 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for sponsorship reasons) was a men's tennis tournament that was played at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom, from 13 to 20 November 2016. It was the season-ending event for the best singles players and doubles teams on the 2016 ATP World Tour.

Stan Wawrinka defeated defending champion Novak Djokovic, 6–7(1–7), 6–4, 7–5, 6–3 to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2016 US Open. This was the first time the men's singles champion at the US Open won the title after being a match point down since Djokovic in 2011, with Wawrinka having saved a match point against Dan Evans in the 3rd round. As he had done in his 2 previous grand slam titles, Wawrinka again defeated the world No. 1 in the final. Djokovic also became the third man in the Open Era to lose five Grand Slam finals at one event.

Roger Federer won his fifth Australian Open title, and 18th Major title overall, defeating Rafael Nadal in the final 6–4, 3–6, 6–1, 3–6, 6–3 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2017 Australian Open. With the win, Federer became the first male player to win at least five titles at three Grand Slam tournaments. The win was also Federer's first title on the ATP tour in over 12 months; his last win was at Basel on 1 November 2015. This was also the first Grand Slam tournament since the 2002 US Open in which Federer was ranked outside the top-10. He went on to reach and win the final of the tournament, making him the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam final since Ken Rosewall made the 1974 US Open final at the age of 39, and the oldest Slam champion since Ken Rosewall had won the 1972 Australian Open at 37 years and 63 days old. Nadal was attempting to become the first male player in the Open Era and the third man ever to achieve a double career Grand Slam.

The 2017 ATP Finals (also known as the 2017 Nitto ATP Finals for sponsorship reasons) was a men's tennis tournament played at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom, from 12 to 19 November 2017. It was the season-ending event for the highest-ranked singles players and doubles teams on the 2017 ATP World Tour.

Roger Federer won the title, winning a record eighth Wimbledon Gentlemen's Singles tennis title and 19th Grand Slam men's singles title, defeating Marin Čilić in the final, 6–3, 6–1, 6–4. With the win, Federer surpassed Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who had each won it seven times. Federer also became only the second man in the Open era, after Björn Borg in 1976, to win Wimbledon without losing a set. This was Federer's 70th appearance at a Grand Slam, tying the record for male players and a record-breaking 11th men's singles final at the same Grand Slam tournament. In addition, by virtue of his third-round win over Mischa Zverev, Federer won his 317th Grand Slam singles match, surpassing Serena Williams' record of 316 match wins and giving him the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles match wins by any player, male or female. Also, with his first-round win, Federer surpassed Jimmy Connors' record for most match wins at Wimbledon. In the same match, he hit his 10000th ace, becoming only the third man to do so. The tournament marked the fifth time that Nadal and Federer won the French Open and Wimbledon respectively in the same year.

Rafael Nadal won his 16th Major title and 3rd US Open title, by defeating Kevin Anderson, 6–3, 6–3, 6–4 to capture the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2017 US Open. Nadal retained the ATP No. 1 singles ranking after Roger Federer lost in the quarterfinals. It was also Nadal's first hard court title since January 2014.
