US Open 2020 Men’s Semifinals Live: Alexander Zverev vs Pablo Carreño Busta, Preview
Viewers will be going to witness a tennis masterclass as Pablo Carreno Busta battles against fifth-seed Alexander Zverev in the semifinals of the US Open 2020. The match has all the more significance as the player who emerges victorious will reach his maiden final of any Major.
Talking about the road to semis, 20th-seed Busta, after winning his fourth-round match against Djokovic in a bizarre fashion, had the toughest match of the tournament in the quarters. The 29-year old Spaniard held his nerve before overcoming the challenge of Canadian Denis Shapovalov. It took five sets and more than four hours before the World No.27 won 3-6, 7-6, 7-6, 0-6, 6-3 in a five-set thriller.
Similarly, Alexander Zverev also had a difficult encounter in his last-eight match. The 23-year old German looked rusty in the opening set before finding his groove to outclass the Croat Borna Coric in four sets 1-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-3. Like Carreno Busta, Zverev too won two tiebreakers en route to victory.
