Dominic Thiem of Austria will play Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the US Open final for their first Grand Slam titles after they won their last-four matches in contrasting styles.Second seed Thiem ousted third-seeded Russian and last year’s runner-up Daniil Medvedev in a closely fought three-setter that was packed with powerful baseline rallies and impressive serving. The 27-year-old Thiem won 6-2, 7-6 (9/7) 7-6 (7/5) in 2hr 56 min inside Arthur Ashe Stadium to reach his fourth Grand Slam final.Earlier, Zverev came from two sets down to complete a remarkable comeback against 20th-seeded Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta and reach his first tennis major final.The 23-year-old German won an error-strewn, scrappy encounter 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 in 3hr 23min, also on the famous Ashe court.It marked the first time in Zverev’s career that he came from two sets behind to win.“I actually looked at the scoreboard when I was down two sets to love,” Zverev said. “I was like, ‘I can’t believe it. I’m playing in a semi-final, I’m supposed to be the favourite and I have no chance, I’m playing that bad.”Zverev made 36 unforced errors in the first two sets compared to just 12 for Carreno Busta as the nerves of the occasion seemed to get the better of him.But Zverev began to cut down on his mistakes in the third set, upping his service game and taking control of rallies with more powerful, accurate groundstrokes.“I started taking the ball more on the rise. I started giving myself the chance to be the one that is aggressive,” said the German, adding: “I’m through to my first Grand Slam final and that’s all that matters.”Carreno Busta said he had lost “a big opportunity” to reach a first Slam final. “I made the semi-finals here. I know that is a good result, is a good performance, but now in this moment it’s tough,” he told reporters.Zverev becomes the first German man to reach the final of a tennis major since Rainer Schuttler at the 2003 Australian Open.This year’s US Open field has been depleted by the absence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.The tournament was blown wide open by the disqualification of world number one and heavy favourite Novak Djokovic in the last 16 for hitting a line judge with the ball.RelatedPosts Thiem claims his first Grand Slam title after thrilling fightback in US Open Djokovic breaks down in tears after hosting Belgrade tennis exhibition Osaka becomes highest-earning female athlete It means Sunday’s final will see a first-time Grand Slam champion for the first time since Croatian Marin Cilic won at Flushing Meadows in 2014.It also means there will be a Grand Slam champion other than Djokovic, Nadal or Federer for the first time since Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka won the third of his tennis majors at the US Open in 2016.Thiem, ranked third in the world, will be playing his second consecutive Slam final after reaching the last-two at this year’s Australian Open.He also lost in the French Open final in 2018 and 2019.Thiem’s semi-final score slightly flattered him. It was a high-quality affair that saw small shifts in momentum in both players’ direction at different stages.Ultimately the match was decided by Thiem winning points at key moments, with Medvedev squandering a 4-2 lead in the second.He was also on set point while serving at 5-3 in the third set but Thiem won a 38-shot rally to take the game and bring the set back on serve before clinching the tie-break and the match.“It was great tennis from both of us,” said Thiem, whose attention now turns to Zverev.“We have such a great friendship and rivalry. It’s really amazing thing that we will face off against each other in a Slam final,” he added.Tags: Alexander ZverevDominic ThiemGrand SlamUS Open final
Press Association Fergus McFadden’s last-minute penalty clinched a hard-earned 23-18 victory for Leinster as they battled past defending Guinness PRO12 champions Glasgow Warriors at the RDS. The Warriors impressed in defence and attack as they built a 13-6 half-time lead, young prop Zander Fagerson going over for a converted try with Duncan Weir and McFadden kicking two penalties apiece. Luke McGrath and Taqele Naiyaravoro swapped tries in the third quarter, but a double whammy – a yellow card for winger Naiyaravoro and a penalty try – saw Leinster edge ahead and McFadden made certain of the win in the dying seconds. The visitors, boosted by six returning Scotland internationals, set the early pace and Leinster needed a Ben Te’o-led choke tackle and a couple of scrum penalties, with Fagerson singled out twice, to claw back some territory. But the Warriors broke the deadlock in the 13th minute, Rob Harley and Rory Hughes having key involvements in a multi-phase attack that eventually finished with the 19-year-old Fagerson muscling over from close range. Weir’s conversion was quickly cancelled out by McFadden’s first successful penalty. A second right-sided kick from the winger closed the gap to one by the 21st minute, rewarding Aaron Dundon for a well-won ruck penalty and accurate lineout throw in the build-up. Weir then punished Leinster for collapsing an advancing maul, punching over a fine 43-metre strike. He repeated the trick from the opposite left wing as Mike McCarthy infringed at a maul six minutes before the interval. Leinster missed a chance to close out the first half with a third penalty goal, McFadden wobbling an injury-time effort wide after Pat MacArthur saw yellow for a ‘reckless’ forearm-led tackle that ended Dundon’s involvement in the game. The home side made their numerical advantage count on the resumption. Two-and-a-half minutes in, scrum-half McGrath’s blindside switch led to Garry Ringrose racing up the right touchline and following a bout of forward pressure, McGrath stretched over for McFadden to convert. Leinster were only level for six minutes, the Scots hitting back with a terrific spell of attacking and a power-packed finish to the right of the posts by big Fijian Naiyaravoro. Weir was unable to convert at 18-13. Noel Reid fumbled a low-slung pass from Ringrose following the latter’s impressive burst on the right, but Leinster’s attacked clicked in the lead-up to their penalty try. Replacement Isaac Boss exploited a gap and Isa Nacewa’s well-weighted kick set up a foot race between McFadden and Naiyaravoro – the latter was deemed to have deliberately slapped the ball over the end-line as the pair lunged for the ball. After consulting with the TMO, referee Ian Davies awarded the penalty try and sin-binned the Fijian, with McFadden’s conversion splitting the sides on the scoreboard. Weir missed a long range penalty in the swirling wind and aided by some excellent carrying from man-of-the-match Ringrose and replacements James Tracy and Tadhg Furlong, Leo Cullen’s men saw out the result with McFadden nailing his final kick of the night.

Published on February 24, 2016 at 12:51 am Contact Tomer: firstname.lastname@example.org | @tomer_langer Three out of Syracuse’s four games this year have been blowouts. In the only close one, a 9-6 victory against Binghamton, All-Americans Kayla Treanor and Halle Majorana didn’t take the field. Other prominent offensive role players like Nicole Levy and Riley Donahue struggled to convert on offense.In need of someone to step up, Kelzi Van Atta notched a hat trick, the first three goals of the sophomore attack’s career.“Once we were able to pull away and succeed with goals and turnovers and all of that, it was definitely it was a good feeling,” Van Atta said.Van Atta was the reason that Syracuse (4-0) managed to pull away. She worked hard before this season to convert into an attack after not playing much as a midfielder last season.The switch started early on in the fall while Van Atta refined her skills with assistant coach Michelle Tumolo. As a midfielder, she had some experience playing in the opponents’ attacking zone, but the skill sets needed are a bit different.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I guess on midfield a lot of it can be transitions and you still have to take the ball hard and know where to go,” Donahue said. “But sometimes on offense it’s knowing exactly where to be and clearing space more.”Van Atta’s speed and athleticism, which directly relate to her dodging ability, will help her transition the most, Richard Curtis, her varsity head coach at Brighton (New York) High School, said.On Sunday against Marist, Van Atta stood adjacent to the goal and sized up her defender. She took one explosive step to the right, curled all the way around and fired the ball in the net for her fourth goal of the season.Van Atta also worked on her free-position shot before the season. Assistant coach Regy Thorpe praised her for going full speed in practice and putting in work after some players had already left the field. It paid off, as Van Atta scored two of her goals against the Bearcats on the free position.As part of playing closer to the goal, Van Atta felt she needed to lean more on her stick skills, something she’d been able to rely on in the past. Those same stick skills were the reason Curtis called her up to play for the varsity team when she was in eighth grade.Curtis said Van Atta will be able to make the transition to attack because she was a quick learner in high school. Whenever he told his versatile star to do something different, she did it.“You didn’t have to shake things five different times, which was nice,” Curtis said. “You could teach it to her once and then she would get it.”Some players need to fake a defender out, but Van Atta’s quick first step helps her blow right by them. Coupled with her stick skills, the two skills have helped Van Atta’s fit on SU’s second-line attack.“We made the move in the fall, and we thought she stepped up and did a great job,” head coach Gary Gait said. “We’re excited that she did make the move.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
