Question: In general, what weaknesses does Thiem still have? I don't see much. And his speed and power off both wings is forcing Novak to hit into tight windows. (Sounds like a role reversal.)

I disagree. Djokovic was great on Thiem's service games, true, but there were chances there in many points. Thiem doesn't need unrealistic consistency, he just needs some.
See, I told you. ;)

But honestly think Djoker breaks back, that is what he does. No way Thiem can hold for an entire set.

Thiem is too cute lol. Such a loveable guy...especially first set, hits a smash and apologizes to the crowd.

Wow,, novak thinks his improvement is going for HUGE 2nd serves...…….. but I don't think that is good idea. Novak is defending counterpunching type of player, you don't need huge 2nd serve for that. Goran is dumb

Sometimes I wonder how good Djokovic could be if he wouldn’t be such a strange character and mental wreck in rather harmless situations.

And what’s even stranger: All of a sudden he can be mentally strong again and miss nothing when it really matters.

Level wise Thiem is better but he already has lost one set with loose start and given his choking abilities it's hard to see him closing this in less than five sets. (Even if he wins).

Big second serve hurting Djokovic more than it is helping. Two double faults on the slice serve. Once to cause break point, and again to get broken.

Surprised by Nole's inconsistency today. We haven't really seen his highest level since the 19 AO final in my opinion. Patchy for his standards all the way since.
Still won Wimbledon and will win today. (let's get real, Thiem isn't winning this after losing the first set)

Doesn't have an elite point starter e.g. serve or return, especially return. Other than that mental stuff like shot selection.

Djokovic stopped playing good at 4-1 in the 1st set. Winning the 1st set was pure luck.

I stopped watching now. Going for a swim for an hour. Hopefully it looks better when I'm back.
