Here we go! The final. The Bull vs The Thieminator.

For Nadal it's a chance to close the gap between him and Federer's slam total to only 3. For Thiem this is his chance to breakthrough and become the first player to beat Nadal in a RG final and only the third player to beat Nadal at RG overall.

Who ya got? I’m going Thiem in 4, his time is now.

It will be a heavyhitting final. All depends on how long Thiem can red line. We know Nadal can go all day.

Nadal to win slam 17 and his 11th RG title on Sunday.

The pwnage of RG continues...

Domi don't make mistakes twice.

Loses to Novak 2016 FO, beats him 2017.

Loses to Rafa 2017 FO, beats him 2018?
Thiem beat Rafa in Madrid, so I expect Rafa to make adjustments and the nerves factor could be problematic for Thiem in his first slam final.

Nadal is the heavy favourite but Thiem at age 24 should be at his absolute peak physical conditioning. If he’s going to pull it off now is the time. You put a gun to my head I’m saying Nadal in 3.

Unless your willing to bet your account on a Thiem victory I don't want to hear a thing about how "dangerous" he is or how this is going to be Nadal's "toughest challenge" blah blah blah. This mug will be lucky to win a set and that's the facts. Fast forward to the trophy presentation so we can get on to grass season please.

my guess is rafa in 3, maybe 4. The last few matches, nadal has definitely gotten off to a slow start and I could see a tight first set and maybe thiem to get the first. I definitely, or well atleast I'm hoping it won't be a complete demolition like last year. Here's hoping thiem doesn't implode and keeps it competitive somewhat.

was looking at their h2h and they really have not played against each other anywhere else except clay. quite interesting.

This wont be as straightforward as Rafa haters are pretending it'll be. Thiem is playing really well, better than Rafa this tournament. How he handles the pressure of a first slam final will be telling though.

I think it’s gonna be routine. I hope not.

Hopefully, Thiem can make a match out of this. I would love to see him push Nadal to 5 sets. This would show that the gap is closing.

However, I think Nadal wins this in 4 sets max. It'll go 6-7, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in favor of Nadal. I.e, I'm giving Thiem credit for having one set where he serves at 80% and smashes ball off the lines like we've never seen before.
