Follow our guide to watch a Thiem vs Medvedev live stream and catch all the 2020 US Open action online wherever you are today.
Dominic Thiem vs Daniil Medvedev is being played at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the US Open’s biggest stage, and is the last of today’s matches being played on the court, with action expected to get under way after 5.30pm ET/2.30pm PT, or 10.30pm BST in the UK. Full live streaming and TV channel details for the match are below – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere with this 100% risk-free ExpressVPN trial.
Medvedev, the 2019 US Open runner-up, is yet to drop a set at this year’s tournament, and will be desperate to get his second shot at the grand prize. Last year’s final was a classic, which saw Medvedev recover from two sets down to push Rafael Nadal all the way, with the Spaniard eventually prevailing after nearly five hours.
Thiem is no stranger to Grand Slam heartbreak either, having lost all three of the Grand Slam finals he’s reached, most recently at this year’s Australian Open. The world No. 3, who has dropped one set throughout the tournament, edges the head-to-head, but was dominated by the Russian the last time they met, in Montreal last year.
However, Medvedev had to get some treatment on his shoulder during the final set of his quarter-final victory over Andrey Rublev, and if he isn’t 100% it’s hard to look beyond Thiem. Read on as we explain how to watch Dominic Thiem vs Daniil Medvedev online today and get a US Open live stream wherever you are in the world.

To watch the US Open, all you really need to know is that ESPN has the rights to live stream tennis in Australia and will be broadcasting the 2020 tournament.
The channel is available on pay TV courtesy of Foxtel and the action generally starts Down Under at 2am AEST each day, with Thiem vs Medvedev set to begin after 7.30am.
This is actually great news for cord cutters, as Aussie streaming service Kayo Sports includes ESPN coverage in its packages. A Kayo Sports Basic Package costs $25 per month and allows users to stream across two devices simultaneously, while a Kayo Sports Premium Package provides three concurrent streams for $35 per month.
Needless to say, this makes it super-affordable if you share with friends, family or fellow tennis fans – plus Kayo offers a FREE trial period so you can watch some of the event for free this August.
Better still, free-to-air SBS Viceland will also get in on the action from Wednesday, September 9, which is when play switches to a 2am start. This means that Aussie viewers can make use of the free SBS On Demand streaming service to tune in.
If you’re away from Australia at the moment, you’ll need to go down the VPN route as set out above.
