Lol hes just not good enough. It's not his fault Djokovic is better. Age doesn't matter if your still playing well which is what Novak is doing.

I agree it's not fun. But that's not thiems fault is it. Hes trying to make something happen in such a slow court but how can we expect him to beat Djokovic playing well at AO. Nadal and fed can't do it, no way can thiem
Thiem is still win-less against guys who aren't 37-38 in big finals.

He was thrown off a cliff halfway through the match, clawed back with all the strength he's got, and took his tormentor by surprise.

Get rid of these silly speeches during the ceremonies. It's just a bunch of fake niceties and politically correct garbage that they have to spout about congratulating the other player and thanking their team and thanking the tournament organisers. It's a pathetic waste of time.

AGREED
 
Novak Speech:
- You will get more than 1 slam in future (To Domi)
- Thanks Domi team, yous were cool
- Thanks my team and family, especially my brother
- There is huge bush fire, conflict, people dying and tribute to Kobe my close friend. Be humble and close with your family
- All supporters, ball kids, organisation etc

So, he did not donate anything even after Zed offered the whole prize money ??

And he shushed the crowd after winning ? And told them to shut the f up ?

He can be happy after winning now.

Any tennis fan has to hope that Thiem doesn't wane after this loss. He's had a great tournament and had Djokovic on the ropes. It wasn't a choke - Djokovic just got back to his unplayable best in the 4th set.
He's beaten Nadal at a Slam once now. He's gotta remember that when the likely RG showdown happens.

Nadal at RG is way better than Djoko in Melbourne.
Think about this for a minute.

Wawarinka was and remains the toughest opponent of Djokovic. Thiem is tough too, but Djokovic believes against him. Djokovic doesn’t have the same belief against Wawrinka.
Wawrinka only beat him once on this court out of 3 tries and that was 9-7 in the 5th. He played the best match of his AO career in 2013 against Djokovic and lost. Why can't people just accept Novak is the greatest AO player ever?

When will AO end this scheduling nightmare? It should always have been equal days off for both parties after a slam SF. At the end of the day, the long matches Thiem had (before the final) caught up with him as he choked.
Novak shows why he is a champion and deservedly gets #17. This loss will badly sting for Dominic. 0-3 in slam finals and sometimes it becomes an insurmountable mental block.

On to Paris for RG. Draw will be critical. Whichever of Nadal or Djokovic gets Thiem in their half will have a Lopsided tough draw and could possibly lose the championship.
Will it be #18 for Novak at RG or #20 for Nadal at RG ? That might well decide the GOAT race..

Meanwhile NOT having new slam winners CANNOT be good for Tennis - an endless loop of fossils (no offense to Nadal/Fed/Djoko) ruling the sport. Tennis needs a NEW champion. FAST...

This is so unfair to Dominic, he played great tournament, anybody else but Nole in finals, he would win, just like in Paris with Rafa.
Novak now needs only two things to become immortal - beat Rafa at RG finals and win Olympics. This is the year...

But the comment says Wawrinka was Djokovic biggest AO challenge which is true. He has taken Novak 5 in 3 separate AO matches.
Djokovic is the best AO player sure.

But he said Novak doesn't have the same belief against Wawrinka. He went through Wawrinka twice to hold AO titles.
