Thiem is a really great player. As a 1HBH player obviously Fed is a idol but ever since I saw Thiem come on the scene he has been magnificent. Inconsistent at times but tremendous talent and aggressive strokes what’s not to love!
And at least a couple of those wins were against Nadal on clay, right?
He’s basically the new Murray (not in terms of style but in terms of being the biggest challenger to Big 3 domination). He just needs to win slams!
He'll probably blow it against Zverev now that I'm saying this but I think he's the closest to really removing the Big Three from the throne. If he can get the win here, I wouldn't be shocked to see a Djokovic 2011 style year from him.
