Playing 2 matches in a day is tough but it`s managable.The problem is u don`t get a day`s rest in this tournament so any player who has 4-5 hours today on the court will struggle big time tomorrow.Also,the problem is the second match might finish very late in the night so no much rest for tomorrow.

Broken with the third BP. 4-3 Verdasco, looking to consolidate and close it out.
Honestly, this is pretty embarrassing for Thiem if he loses here. This year should've been a turning point for him after getting his first Masters in IW and Rafa dropping off a cliff. He's looking at not even making a single clay Masters final, let alone winning one.

Thiem probably lacks confidence after the Djokovic defeat. He thought he was way past the "at least he is going toe to toe with the world no.1" part at this stage of his career and he couldn't even win a set.

I think it's more that he's just not having a good year. Before IW he was having a very down year, and then he immediately lost his next match in Miami too. He's been inconsistent even by his standards.

In the context I was referring to, so was Djokovic. No excuses for Thiem.

Not only is Thiem inconsistent, but I think he's also very matchup dependent.
