Let's go Stef!! Let's go!
i feel like for the most part nick owns who he is. i cant speak for tomic since i dont know much about it. but between his gamesmanship antics, his faux intellectual tweets where most of the time he is actually quoting someone else and not being original, he just needs to stop talking. he has tweeted some pretty dangerous things imo and people just pretend he is this cute, quirky innocent thingIt's just one step from that to Kyrgios-Tomic doucchebag-ery.
I can't watch the match. Do Thiem's bombs have precision? Are they telegraphed? If No to the first question and Yes to the second then really Thiem needs to work on a bit of disguise to reach the next level in performance.Stef is clearly the better player so far. He's doing to Thiem what Federer consistently did to Roddick. Block those bombs with clinical ease and dominate the middle of the court and move the opponent around.
It tends to happen when you have to beat Federer and Djokovic to go through to the next round. It's also another thing when you're playing Nadal in a match that you can lose so of course you lose it because you suck.Thiem looks less fresh than Tsitsipas. Here is where the difference is made imo.
Then Tsists came out the next day after a disappointing loss in a 3 hour match and beat Federer, looking fresh as a daisy. Would Nadal at 33 have done that? Unlikely. That's what youth allows you to do. He did try but Nadal was too good.And yet 33 years old Nadal was too good for him in this tournament, LOL. And don't say Tsitsipas didn't try. He was fighting for 3 hours.
Being a bit rushed by good Tsitsi court positioning and bombs of his own..I can't watch the match. Do Thiem's bombs have precision? Are they telegraphed? If No to the first question and Yes to the second then really Thiem needs to work on a bit of disguise to reach the next level in performance.
