While this is indeed true, I don't think it excuses Thiem or Zverev in any way. Never have I seen a men's major final where the guy rolling 2nd serves over the net was serving for the title. It was embarrassing tbh. And neither wanted to hit a winner towards the end of it. They just waited on errors, and one guy finally out-errored the other. Maybe Coria's choke comes close, but even then I'm not sure.Tennis fans have been spoiled by the greatness of Fedalvic. It's going to be an extremely long time before we witness that high consistent level of tennis on the men's tour again.
Thiem did. After all the work, tough losses he has had, this one is deserved. He didn't play anywhere close to his capabilities today but I honestly think his foot was bothering him, and in the end he also cramped. I think these things played a factor. It would be a travesty that a player this good would continue going slamless.I don't think either of them deserved it.
Yeah it's pretty bad. The guy basically has the service yips and he's 23.How long will it take for Zverev to recover from this??? I mean if you are going to lose a match from such a strong position throughout the match make sure the other guy earns it. Don’t even care about the DFs as long as there is intent on the serve but a 6’6 guy spinning 90-100mph even on the first serve when you are ahead in the match is gutless. Gawd!!!!

Retire? Never Fedal are already in contracts for transhumanism just round the corner.This is a glimpse of what we will watch once the big 3 retire. The tennis is worse quality for sure, although most of the top players seem evenly matched.
Come on, watch it again as I just did. He didn't laugh at all, Domi was pure class throughout.That was completely CLASSLESS from Thiem. Lack of humanity and sportsmanship. Most importantly class.
He barely squeezed the match with a LOT of luck. But he couldn't stop laughing at Zverev's face. Total lack of consideration.
Can't wait for Thiem's next choke in a slam final.
You wot mate?Thiem has to be the LEAST DESERVING grand slam champion in the HISTORY of Tennis. In terms of talent and game.
There are so many slamless players who are SO MUCH BETTER than Thiem.
But yeah, Big 3 are out and Thiem wins. It's a pity for all those talented players who never won a slam.
