Poor Thiem. He's got a disciple of Muzziah on one shoulder, and one of Djabolus on the other, and now he has to pick aside
 
It's amazing how often that actually happens. Emotional letdown leads to immediate break.
More like physical letdown. Tennis is a tough sport. Thiem is probably in coasting mode to recharge for the third. Remember's some of Nadal's recent matches, like Shanghai 15 SF vs Tsonga or IW 16 4R vs Zverev until the MP choke. It's a viable tactic if the player is confident he'll get better again in the deciding set.

I guess he should work on his fitness then. If he can't play 2 sets with the better players without tanking one of them he's going nowhere fast.

Thiem is obviously not worried about losing sets 6-0 here either. I mean it's not like set/game percentage ever decided the SF'ists before. Just ask Andy Murray. /sarcasm.
