oh the drama
He had been too passive in his game, and mentally fragile, just look at his stats from the beginning of the year. It was a loss after loss. He got on his feet before only before MC just on time to slay the UltronOnly watched Vesely twice... But how is this guy not higher?
Lefty, good serve, good groundies and ice cold in tough moments!
Zverev played Berdych very close two time already in 2016 (5 set Davis Cup). That was much earlier this year on agruably Zverev's worst surface. Berd Brain is in decline. Zverev beat Baghdatis fairly handily on grass recently, the same Baghs who beat Berdy early in the event. Zverev has improved a lot and clearly is very difficult to break on grass. I will be shocked if he doesn't make R16. Youzhny is good on grass, but that would be an upset.
I state Zverev vs Thiem would be a close match (Thiem owns the head to head in last few months at 3-0). If its declined Berd brain in the R16 I don't see that being any issue at all for Thiem. Berdy got dumped by Simon last year at Wimby, don't see him making it through at all as his grass game sure looks like it has slipped. Wawrinka has never won a grass event in his career, don't see him as a threat on grass. Thiem is the higher seed, so it only takes a few puffs to be in a Thiem dream.
I admit Thiem over Murray would be an upset, but I think Thiem will pull it off he makes the match. Once Thiem kicks it into gear his level stays very high most of the time. My gut says Murray will end up losing somehow due to one of his inexplicable lulls. Last match with Murray was Miami 2015. 3 sets and Thiem is a far more accomplished player at this stage. Thiem is the title holder in 6 events. He knows how to win and this is an easy a draw for Thiem as one could hope for, except for the dangerous first round match against Florian Mayer. Thiem has a great draw.
Yeah, an improved ROS would do wonders for Dominic. Here's hoping it's an area of his game he starts working on with his coach throughout the summer.Well this match also shows why Djokovic and Murray are so good because the return is what you need to shut down somebody like vesely when hes on
So Thiem, Zverev, Kyrgios and Wawrinka................all players who can potentially cause an upset are not in Djokovic's half....What a joke!
Half my prediction already proven correctThiem and Wawrinka will not make the second week
VeselyWhat was vesely serve stats?
He was serving well
I have this for Meles' prediction :Ha ha Meles! Great predicting from you once again! Thiem couldn't even make it to Zverev let alone beat players like Berdych, Wawrinka and then Murray and Djokovic.
Stop hyping this kid Thiem! Wait until he consistently beats the top ten players and wins big tournaments! At least Vesely has defeated Djokovic before.
yeah just a little bit will help immensely... he doesnt gave to be a great returner just a clutch one.Yeah, an improved ROS would do wonders for Dominic. Here's hoping it's an area of his game he starts working on with his coach throughout the summer.

dude, he was predicting thiem to beat zverev, berdych, stan and murray ....Ooh that's a bit harsh abmk!
Vesely put Thiem off his game. Thiem had such promise in this tournament especially with excellent serving yesterday, but the serve went away today and the rest of his game was not enough.Good match from Vesley, he had to go out and win it. Thiem just a fraction off today and that is all it took for him to lose.
