Alexander Zverev held a two-set lead against Dominic Thiem and had the chance to serve out the match at 5-3 in the fifth set but in the end lost to the Austrian in the US Open Final.

Zverev was emotional understandably so but doesn’t believe it is his final opportunity at a Grand Slam victory.

”At the speech, I got emotional. I couldn’t put two words together… It was a difficult moment for me,” Zverev said. “I was super close to being a Grand Slam champion. I was a few games away, maybe a few points away. What upset me the most is not the third set. It’s the fifth set. I had a lot of chances in the fifth set and didn’t use them.

”I’m 23 years old. I don’t think it’s my last chance. I do believe that I will be a Grand Slam champion at some point.”
