How to watch the U.S. Open Final online: Live stream Thiem vs. Zverev

With Serena Williams’ valiant but unsuccessful campaign for her 24th grand slam title and Novak Djokovic’s early and shocking default after hitting a line judge with a ball in his first set against Pablo Carreno Busta, this year’s unprecedented U.S. Open has been anything but uneventful. Djokovic’s angry outburst may have cost him another title, but it has carved a long-anticipated space for the rest of his younger competitors to finally take home a win. Although Williams made it all the way to the semifinals this year, her absence in the finals — like Djokovic’s — left room for other rising stars like Naomi Osaka to shine on this year’s cutthroat women’s singles roster. It seems that the 2020 U.S. Open has inadvertently become the year of the rookies. After Osaka bested Victoria Azarenka in the harrowing women’s singles final last night, it’s time for the men’s singles final this afternoon. Let’s see whether Dominic Thiem or Alexander Zverev will step up and claim the title that Djokovic let slip through his grasp. Here’s how to watch the U.S. Open Finals online.

ESPN+ offers complete streaming coverage of this year’s U.S. Open Final. Use this link to sign up and get exclusive access to thousands of live sporting events and archives, spanning everything from MLB to NHL to UFC and — most importantly — Grand Slam tennis. Unfortunately, the service does not offer a free trial period, but the monthly subscription fee only rounds out to a reasonable $6 per month. Not to mention the alternative streaming package, which bundles ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu into one easy payment of $13 per month. With the bundle, you save 30% on all three services and gain an excellent cable alternative (for those viewers itching to cut the cord). Still, the important thing to remember is that both of these ESPN+ streaming plans include full coverage of this year’s U.S. Open Final.

Thiem is definitely the favorite going into this afternoon’s men’s singles final, especially since he has beaten Zverev in seven out of their nine past matches. Regardless, with two such strong players facing off in the match of the season — and with this being the first time in four years that a Grand Slam men’s singles final will not include Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic — it remains anyone’s game.

Jaime Munguia wants a belt. The undefeated Munguia (41-0, 33 KOs) is taking on Sergiy Derevyanchenko (14-4, 10 KOs) for the vacant WBC Silver super middleweight title this weekend, which he hopes will put him in line for some bigger title fights. Munguia has faced some backlash over his recent opponents' lack of pedigree. Derevyanchenko is a step in the right direction. He's a formal title challenger looking for his own belts. He's suffered four tough decision losses in his career, but they've been to tough opponents like Gennadiy "GGG" Golovkin and Jermall Charlo.

How to watch the Sunny Edwards vs Andres Campos live stream
A promotional poster showing Sunny Edwards, Andres Campos, and the undercard fighters.

It's a fantastic week to watch boxing. There are half a dozen fights this worth watching this week, and we start Saturday off with a card packed full of title fights. Sunny Edwards (19-0, 4 KOs) will defend his IBF World Flyweight belt in a match against Andres Campos (15-0, 4 KOs). Both Edwards and Campos are undefeated going into this fight. As they say, the O must go. This is Edwards' fourth defense of the belt since he won it from Moruti Mthalane in December of 2023. Neither man is a knockout artist, so we'll likely see some technical boxing sent to the judge's scorecards.

This is a stacked card. Besides Edwards vs Campos, we get two title fights on the undercard: Cherneka Johnson vs Ellie Scotney, as Johnson defends her IBF women's super bantamweight title, and Nina Hughes vs Katie Healy, as Hughes defends her WBA women's bantamweight title. If that isn't enough, we get a British cruiserweight title eliminator bout between Cheavon Clarke and Davis Jamieson. See the full undercard below.
