Thiem is the more experienced player of the two finalists in Grand Slam title tilts.
The second-seeded Austrian lost to Nadal at the 2018 and 2019 French Open and fell to Djokovic in the 2020 Australian Open final in five sets.
Thiem comes into Sunday’s final in much better form than Zverev, as he dropped a single set in his first six matches.
The Austrian showed off his shot-making ability in a big match Friday, as he fended off the threat from the third-seeded Medvedev in a pair of tiebreaks.
In his four victories over seeded players, Thiem lost a single set, which occurred in the third set of the third round against Marin Cilic.
Since then, Thiem survived three tiebreaks in nine sets and has won four sets through a score of 6-1 or 6-2.
Zverev has not looked sharp in his last two matches, as he was pushed to four sets by Borna Coric in the quarterfinals and dropped the opening two sets to Pablo Carreno Busta in the semifinal.
For the first time in his career, the fifth-seeded German achieved a win after being down two sets down Friday, but he needs to be much better to challenge Thiem.
Dominic Thiem overcame a right ankle injury, a set point in the second and third sets, and the relentless counterpunching of third seed Daniil Medvedev to reach his first US Open final on Friday. The second seed dug deep and displayed his trademark fighting spirit to outlast Medvedev 6-2, 7-6(7), 7-6(5).
“I love these big matches. To face the best guys in the world is what I do the hard work for at home and in the off-season,” Thiem said on court after the match. “After the first set, it was great tennis from both of us. I could have easily been down two-sets-to-one. I’m really happy to be through. It was a great semi-final.”
