It's been almost 8 months since the last Slam in tennis, but the 2nd one of the year is finally here. And what more fitting place to have it than at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park? No Rafa, no Roger. Novak Djokovic has started the year 23-0, will he go 30-0 once it's over? The women's event look wide open. The two faves are still Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, but there are question marks over both with the former not being in form and the latter being injured. And will we even get two weeks of 100% focus on tennis or will there be more boycotts or covid drama?

Zverev has the weirdest serve yips we've ever seen, have we ever seen someone who can put down 140+ serves, and 2nd serve fluctuates from about 70-125mph. No idea what is going on there really, as it's hard to even know what's going through your head when you're fluctuating that much.

Zverev has age massively on his side really. Grand slams surely be wide open at some point in his career, Thiem significantly older even if he should get a lot more chances, it's very hard to see him not winning RG some day (though hard to see him being particularly well prepared for it this year as assume won't play beforehand).

Analysis - BBC tennis correspondent Russell Fuller

An astonishing Grand Slam final - which had moments of sheer genius, and others which felt like intruding on private grief.

For the first two sets, Thiem was listless and horribly off key; Zverev often excelling in his first Grand Slam final.

The final set produced the best tennis of the match, but also moments of unbearable stress and pressure. Both served for the title, and in the tie-break Zverev's two double faults made the difference, after Thiem looked to have a case of terminal cramp.

Perhaps we underestimated just how stressful it would be to win a Grand Slam in the absence of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal. Without any of them as opponents in the final, neither could pretend they had nothing to lose.

It will be a crushing disappointment to Zverev, but he has reached a semi-final and a final in this year's two majors, with still so much room to improve.

Thiem, meanwhile, is likely to become an even more formidable Grand Slam foe for Djokovic and Nadal.

He will think anything is possible right now, but surely even this extraordinary athlete will need more than 13 days to get ready for another tilt at a major title at the French Open in Paris.
