"After the first set, it could easily have been two-sets-to-one down. I played my best tennis at the ends of the sets, and both tiebreaks were amazing," US Open's official website quoted Thiem as saying.

"Tiebreaks are really mentally a tough thing. I don't like them at all, to be honest," he added.

Earlier in the day, German tennis player Alexander Zverev came back from two sets down to secure a dramatic 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, US Open semi-final win over Pablo Carreno Busta. With this win, Zverev became the first German man to reach the US Open singles final since Michael Stich in 1994.
