Remember when he beat Murray in 5 hours, came back 2 days later and beat Nadal in 6 hours? Natural athlete.
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.

Sensing 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.
On the contrary, Thiem loves play Djokovic, and has won 4 of their last 5 meetings, including their most recent on hardcourt :)


Massive credit to Thiem to wrestle the score back to 4-4. He will need to continue to zone if he wants to win this. Anything less will not do.

Watching Thiem making the necessary adjustments to get back on track is why coaching should never be allowed in men's tennis.

Why Thiem is trying that stupid backhand slice. That won't cause any harm.
Only the backhand dtl rocket speed does damage to novak


Passive play cost Thiem early break. Now recovered, with his groundstrokes has started firing, Djokovic gonna find it tough.
