Alexander Zverev faces Pablo Carreno Busta today in the first of the US Open men’s singles semi-finals, with both players vying for a shot at their first Grand Slam. Follow our guide to watch a Zverev vs Busta live stream and catch all the 2020 US Open action online wherever you are this Friday.
Zverev vs Busta: US Open live stream
Alexander Zverev vs Pablo Carreno Busta is being played at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the US Open’s biggest stage, and is the third of today’s afternoon session matches, with play expected to get under way at roughly 4pm ET/1pm PT, or 9pm 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.
It was Busta who was watching on as championship favorite Novak Djokovic, his fourth-round opponent, pleaded against expulsion from the Open for accidentally hitting a line judge with a ball, after being broken in the latter stages of the first set. It would be a shame if that turns out to be the main thing the Spaniard is remembered for at the end of this tournament.
Ranked 27 in the world, Busta is the undoubted underdog today, and aside from the Djokovic game he’s managed to work his way quietly through the rounds. If he wins today, he’d become the lowest-ranked US Open men’s finalist since 1973, though he comes into the match with injury concerns over his back, which he appeared to hurt late on in his five-set victory over Denis Shapovalov.
Big things have been expected of world No. 7 Zverev ever since his 2018 breakthrough, and with Djokovic out of contention he’s got a brilliant chance of stamping his name amongst the greats of the game. But can the 23-year-old German cope with the pressure of being today’s big favourite?
His serve is a fantastic weapon, but double-faults have been a creeping issue. Read on as we explain how to watch Alexander Zverev vs Pablo Carreno Busta online today and get a US Open live stream wherever you are in the world today.

How to live stream the US Open 2020 and watch tennis online in Australia
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 Zverev vs Busta expected to begin at around 6am.
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.
