With this win, Zverev became the first German man to reach the US Open singles final since Michael Stich in 1994.
The 23-year-old player lost the first two sets but came back strongly in the third set with a 6-3 win. Zverev then carried on his momentum in the latter two sets to advance in his first Grand Slam final.

The fifth-seeded Zverev will either play Dominic Thiem or Number three Daniil Medvedev in the US Open final on Sunday. (ANI)
