Tsitsipas has inherited Federer's talent of sheer unadulterated luck in shanking balls inside the lines

This is why I slightly favored Tsists as to who I thought would win. He's been even keeled and high level all week, and even in a dead rubber match. Thiem has played a very high level as well but had a letdown against Berretini.
Yeah I thought Thiem's sightly higher firepower would win out but he doesn't have that same focus and intensity of the Djokerer matches.

Really nice point there. Stef's defence is surprisingly good, but Thiem crushes another FH, now BP again.

Felt like he went away a bit against Nadal, but apparently he wasn't giving it 100% - or so he says :laughing:
That's good for him to say. Any of the Big 3 would do the same in their own backhanded way if they were playing a dead rubber.

I can't believe how Greece went from producing legends like Aristotle, Hippocrates, Diogenes to Stefanos "I like myself better naked" Tsitsipas
Excellent post. It is a shame really that TsiTsipas belongs to the land of the greatest thinkers and the most noble human beings to have ever lived. What a contrast.

He's not the best loser for sure. I thought he gave it everything but Nadal toughed him out
Watching I think he took something off his groundies after set 1 and ended up playing more defence. Might be that Nadal took more time away from him but hard to tell.
