New York: Alexander Zverev rallied to reach his first grand slam final, beating Pablo Carreno Busta 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 at the US Open.
The No.5 seed completed his first career comeback from two sets down and the first in the US Open semi-finals since Novak Djokovic outlasted Roger Federer in 2011.
Zverev is trying to become Germany’s first grand slam champion since Boris Becker at the 1996 Australian Open. He will face either No.2 seed Dominic Thiem or No.3 Daniil Medvedev, the 2019 runner-up.
Carreno Busta, the No.20 seed, lost in the US Open semi-finals for the second time in four years.
