Another beautiful FH winner! 101 mph for Thiem.
yea, but Nadal and Murray aren't any more offensive than Djokovic on avg. Thiem and Wawrinka are more off the ground, as long as they are consistent, their heavy strokes wear Djokovic down.Remember when he beat Murray in 5 hours, came back 2 days later and beat Nadal in 6 hours? Natural athlete.
On the contrary, Thiem loves play Djokovic, and has won 4 of their last 5 meetings, including their most recent on hardcourtSensing a beatdown already. My impression is that Thiem's inner clay-player is showing through. Djokovic is hitting flat and Thiem is not getting under the ball at all to hit his signature topspin shots. I don't think that he is beaten mentally already, I just think Thiem is not suited to beating someone who can hit the ball flat.
