The big 3 tyranny ends next year IMHO.

Thiem or Medvedev to take it. I would like it to be Thiem as him being no.2 would completely change the game.

Beating Djokodal back to back is tough, but imagine a complete half without them. A peaking Thiem or one of his peers will love that idea.

Depends where that direct clash takes place. If it's in a final, Djokovic all the way. Timmy can't be trusted on the big stage.

True. Timmy would unleash his full power and send Djokovic packing if they meet before the final. If it's the final, Thiem will summon his choking powers to lose in 4 or 5 sets.

Thiem is the key here. Whoever gets him in the final wins.

Lmao! But whoever gets him before the final loses :laughing:

He has the game to dethrone Nadal and Djokovic now but just can't keep up with them mentally in big finals. If he can fix that, I feel like he can have a greater career than Wawrinka's.

I don't think his nerves in big finals will ever be fixed. It's just who he is as a person. Not everyone is built to handle pressure.

Nearly lost a slam final to Zverev too, so it's not just the Big 3 who bring the worst out of him.

Even after being a GS champion, he still couldn't win the WTF final, despite him saying that being a slam champion had given him inner peace.
