Dominic Thiem became the first player in the Open Era that began in 1968 to rally from two sets down and win a US Open final when he beat his friend, Alexander Zverev, 2-6 4-6 6-4 6-3 7-6 (6) in New York on Sunday.

But the seventh-ranked Zverev — who struggled in his previous two matches as the significant favorite — cruised in the opening two sets in his first Grand Slam final.

Thiem set up a break point at 2-3 after winning one of the rallies of the tournament, speedily defending around the court before hitting a forehand passing shot down the line.

Zverev routinely pressured Them on serve thereafter and got his reward at 4-3 as Thiem was forced into a backhand error.

Zverev was broken at 5-3 and Thiem produced magic to escape from 15-30 at 4-5, capping the game with a sizzling forehand pass.

On the first, Thiem missed a forehand sitter with Zverev stranded.

Thiem joked that he might have to call Andy Murray if he lost Sunday, since the Scot lost his first four Grand Slam finals.
