    Thiem's draw, one of the hardest possible?

    Very bad luck for Thiem. When he's in such good form right now. Will be difficult to have enough energy to win this one. Cilic, Ruud, Wawrinka, Schwartmann (the last three in great form right now), Nadal, Djokovic (....and also Sock, not very tough...)
