Winner

Hmm, interesting poll results so far. Basically Thiem winning the polls with 70:30.
And i thought here that TTW is voting with the heart, not with the ratio. I mean that was the official explanation from the Fedr fans about the poll results in the 2014 WB, 2015 WB, and 2015 USO threads.

So the only logical explanation has to be that Thiem has much more fans on TTW than Fedr, isn't it!? Or...:sneaky::unsure:

Voters don't of course always have to for the same reason

Different circumstances. It's not a slam final either. Reaching now.

Assume Novak is his semifinal opponent and Nadal is waiting in the final. Do you think Dom can defeat the big three in succession to win a title? I think Murray was the last the defeat all three in an event? Someone will know if that's correct. And Fed is ancient, so the accomplishment isn't the same as if someone did it in 2011-2012.
Murray has never done that. Pretty sure the only guy to do it is Nalbandian in 2007.

2007 Madrid Indoors
R1 Nalbandian d. Clement 57 62 64
R2 Nalbandian d. (9) Berdych 46 64 76(2)
R3 Nalbandian d. (WC) Del Potro 62 64
QF Nalbandian d. (2) Nadal 61 62
SF Nalbandian d. (3) Djokovic 64 76(4)
F Nalbandian d. (1) Federer 16 63 63

This has to be the most ridiculous run I've ever seen.

Most of the Fedr fans expects that Thiem will win

Federe in 2. Thiem did not return Fognini that well so Fed should be secure on serve.

Peak clayerer on display with 56% points won so far on clay and very impressive 2nd serve and 2nd return numbers show the new backhand is taking to clay like a duck to water.
Your stats don't really correspond with what the eyetest showed me. That's the problem with your limited sample size. The Gasquet match made him look better than he was, as did that first set bagel while Gooroo was awol.

Yes, TT is Thiem country, terribly biased.

I'm not sure how this will be exploited, because I'm not Roger Federer, but Tim looks a bit uncomfortable with the pace of the balls and court. He does not have time for his full setup. Somehow Fred will disrupt Tim's groundstrokes and rhythm even more with junkballing - intentional and unintentional - par excellence.

It'll be tight but Fed in 3, with Tim losing it almost as much as Fed winning it.

Federer's odds made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Gambling again.

You are trolling. Roger Federer will not be able to win more than four games against Thiem. It will be either 6-3, 6-4 or 6-3, 6-2.

Anyone who posts Roger Federer can beat Rafa/Novak/Thiem/Zverev/Nishikori/Stan/Schwartzman/Fognini etc on clay is surely trolling or an overly optimistic Roger Federer fan

This tourney is Thiem's chance to claim the scalps of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal in succession. Will he do it? Let's see. It won't be easy to beat Federer alone, but he may be able to do it. I also think any of the remaining players can win this tourney.

At first I believed you were honest. Then I saw YOU are trolling. :p
The best was Schwartzman. :D

Thiem needs to turn this into a gutter war early. If he allows Fed to express himself out there, could be trouble.
