Thiem managed to beat a number of records on last night: 1) it was the first fifth-set tiebreak in a final at the US Open, 2) he became the first player in the Open Era (it began in 1968) to come back from two sets down and win a US Open final.

As we reported earlier, the Iranian authorities executed the 27-year-old champion of the country in Greco-Roman wrestling Navid Afkari.

He was convicted of participating in illegal gatherings, gatherings, and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security, insulting the country's top leadership, and stabbing a water company worker to death during the riots.

It should be noted that along with Afkari, two more of his brothers, Wahid and Zabib, were convicted as well. They were put in prison: one of them for 54 years, the other - for 27 years.
