Thiem won't allow Nole to achieve the grand slam


Hall of Fame
I'm having a hunch Nole will be prevented one way or the other to win Sunday, by either Medvedev or by some unknown obscure fate; it somehow involves Thiem's solemn pledge of protecting Roger's records.

Does anybody know if Thiem's in New York ?

In case he is, Novak better double down on his security staff.


Hall of Fame
Not to speak ill of Austrians, except that’s what I’m doing, but Austria has a better record at producing sociopaths than they do tennis players.


Thiem will send an inspirational text message to Medvedev ahead of the match. It will prove to be the ultimate difference maker.
