The first group: * Medvedev 2-5 Thiem
Thiem navigates to another easy place. He has won 11 of the last 12 points on his racket and scored up to 12 of the 12 first serve points in the match. Medvedev to work to stay in the opening.
Tim breaks in the sixth inning of the first set!
Group A: Medvedev 2-4 Thiem *
An exhausting exchange of 30 rounds erupted at the opening point with Tim breaking a backhand. Medvedev pays a non-returnable serve followed by the winner of a 125-mph serve in the middle, then double faults for 30-for all. Then Tim wins the next point for a second look at a breakout point in the most matches, but Medvedev saves it by sending another powerful for the Devil. At this point, Medvedev had received a warning to cross the grid to signal a mark after he was not allowed to compete late. He is mocking the mockery after his pleas for a chair referee and moderator have been rejected: “My sincere apologies for the US Open to cross the net.” It was from there that Tim got his best Rally of 20 hits and broke Medvedev when he missed a shot.
The first group: * Medvedev 2-3 Thiem
Stuck in love, Tim hit a winner with a header into the net at the first point and was followed by three big transmissions Medvedev couldn’t return to play. He won seven straight serving points and won all of the first nine serve points for the night.
Group A: Medvedev 2-2 TIM *
The first pressure points in the match for any of the players as Medvedev goes to love – 30 in his serving. It returns it to 30 times, but Theim then hits a backhand into the net early at the 30-40 point and the first chance to break a point in the night. Medvedev responds well, zipping with quick three points that ravish ace down the center to escape with the comment.
Group A: Medvedev 1-1 Tim *
Medvedev broke 120 mph wide for a period of 15-40, then followed by his first double foul in the evening and a non-coercive foul from baseline to propel him to a draw. But he stuck comfortably from there, locking in control in his opening serving match with a winning forehand strike on the net.
Group A: * Medvedev 0-1 Tim
A theme in an elaborate opening service game that included combinations of 13, 12, 13 and 17 strokes … and three unspecified Medvedev mistakes.
Daniel Medvedev could become the first player of the open era (since 1969) to win the US Open men’s singles title without losing a set. The 24-year-old Russian, who pushed Rafael Nadal to the limit by more than five sets in last year’s final, swept 15 sets in this year’s tournament to get to that point.
Dominic Thiem, 27, became the first Austrian to reach the semi-finals in US Open history after nearly foul in 2018, when he lost a tiebreak in the fifth set to Nadal in the quarter-finals. The last Austrian player to knock on the door was the great Thomas Moster, who reached the quarter-finals at the US Open in 1993, 1994 and 1996.
