I'll preface this by saying that I really like Thiem's game, I've always been a sucker for the 1H BHers who make every shot look so pretty. I thought this would be an interesting question to pose, though.

This year on HC Thiem is 18-15. For his career, 72-64 on hard. Keep in mind that Thiem has been ranked in the top 10 for the entirety of 2017, meaning he's been seeded at every event he's played and faced no top players in the early rounds.

His best win on hard courts this year has been Gael Monfils at Indian Wells, when Monfils was ranked 11 in the world (Gael would soon begin a year-long slide down the rankings all the way to world #45 currently.) Dominic has top-50 wins over Simon, Mannarino, Fognini, Paire, and both Zverev brothers.

His worst loss on HC was to world #109 Pierre-Hugues Herbert (currently #83) in the Netherlands. Thiem has also lost hard court matches outside the top 50 to Guido Pella, Borna Coric, Victor Troicki, Nikoloz Bashilashvili and Dan Evans.

If you were to rank the top 50 players on hard courts, would World #6 Dominic Thiem be included?
