Perfect news for Djokovic. Terrible news for Nadal.
Nadal and Djokovic have played to my knowledge, one match on clay, under a roof. Hamburg 2008, the result determined the number two ranking position. Nadal won 7-5, 2-6, 6-2.I don’t know what effect it will have on the conditions, but really, it’s time. If Nadal can’t prove his clay GOAT status under the roof, then I guess someone else deserves the title next year. I’m sure he will though.
Yes, but we all know why he lost in 2017. He was simply atrocious this year because of his elbow injury and huge lack of confidence. And this year, the windy conditions affected him greatly. Under normal conditions, that wouldn’t be a beatdown like in 2016 because Thiem obviously plays much better now but he would just take a set off Djokovic, I think.Ditto!
For the love of god thiem is jacking his azz at the french!
