Glad to see Thiem finally win a grand slam! I left the house this morning and he was down two sets to zero and thought he was about to go 0 and 4 in grand slam finals. Zverev is making a name for himself this year too. Youth his on his side.

A tremendous come-back win. Great fight. Awesome tennis. Congratulations to champion Monsieur Dominic Thiem. All the best to challenger and runner-up Alexander Zverev in the challenges ahead. Well played.

Both women's and men's US Open finals were comebacks

The women's is the first since 1994

The men's 2-set comeback is the first time ever in the Open era

Good to seem Thiem finally win a GS after several finals. Zverev is a loose cannon who has a tendency to explode in anger at times. As usual, the men have had to work for their prizes - tough matches against top players, even in the absence of the big three, unlike the women's.
