Too bad he didn't do better in slams, it feels like he should be #3 with all his titles.
Not just the slams. A lot of his year was disappointing. His IW title came out of nowhere if you remember. He couldn't even make the finals of his small February clay tournaments. And then immediately after winning IW, he lost 1st round in Miami. All 3 clay Masters were disappointing before he saved his clay season with a RG final.

Age does not mean as big a deal anymore obviously, so 33/34 is definitely not that old these days. 38 year old Federer and 38 year old Serena still winning slams, and Serena as a 300 pound elephant who doesn't even practice anymore, just shows up and plays slams which are mostly shopping trips with a tennis match every 2 days. Still yes if Thiem is that great he should be able to topple a 33+ year old Nadal at Roland Garros.

Fed last won a slam at age 36. I don't follow WTA, but Serena hasn't won a major since age 36. So your math is quite a bit off. No man has ever won a major at age 38 in the Open era, not even close.

Dominic taking a leaf out of Djokovic's book - coming through a really tight 1st set and then dropping his concentration right at the beginning of the 2nd.
Less frustrating than 2nd Setterer who will dominate the opening frame 6-1 before dropping serve to open the 2nd.

The start to this set is why I still have major doubts that Timmy could beat RAFA in a RG final. This has been a huge let down in level. You can't afford to do that against the legends, and expect to get away with it. Timmy won the 2nd set this year, and then preceded to lose the 3rd and 4th set 6-1, 6-1.

Yes, most of his titles were minor league (500 and 250, including his 2 home events). WTF would be his 2nd big title of the year.( He looks unbeatable this week. ) But Fed won a single tier 1: Miami and 3 smaller events vs 4 for Thiem. So if Thiem won WTF on top, it feels like he should pass Fed. (They both have 1 slam final on top).

Dammit, Domi just losing focus and Tsitsipas isn't going away. This kid is really going places, I wish I could like him more.
Yeah I'm the same. Warming to him but he is a bit of a tit but I suppose I like NK regardless of his ways...

Tsitsipas is just racing through this set. Dominic needs to stop the bleeding because he doesn't want to start the 3rd like this.
