Extremely grateful to be able to witness this quality of tennis even during a pandemic. Also grateful that rafa is still playing at such a high level. No matter how old he keeps saying he is.
Winning his first slam has really made a huge difference to his confidence.

Romain Mj
Romain Mj:
Why is thiem so good in tiebreaks ? Simply cause he is not playing tie breaks like majority of the players very "safely" ! Thiem is all the time offensive and taking risk all the time ! And his power and mental make of him a great champion ! Lets go domi you gonna win this time !

Thiem has won 7 out of the 9 tie breaks he played against Nadal ! And the last 5 sets won by thiem against Nadal were tiebreakers

These two always push each other further than most other players can to each of them. When they do this, they produce and bring out the best in each other. So fun and entertaining to watch!!! ;)
This was one of the highest quality matches I鈥檝e seen. Unfortunate it didn鈥檛 go to 3 sets, but honestly Thiem was unstoppable in the tiebreaks so I鈥檓 not too surprised.

Ryo is extremely quiet now that Thiem won
Incredible athleticism and shot making by both. Tennis at its best
Mysterious Blue
Mysterious Blue:
The problem Nadal has is Thiem does not have an issue attacking his forehand, his backhand is also solid coping with Nadal鈥檚 heavy topspin shots. Nadal only really has plan A in 99% of matches which is attack with the forehand with lots of topspin and use his left handed advantage. It鈥檚 how his beat Federer more consistently especially on clay where the ball bounces higher to the backhand side. Thiem also plays Nadal at his own game running down every ball no matter what like a mad man. Nadal has the advantage on clay because he moves better on a slower surface and can get more balls into play.

Dominic really matures as a men and a tennis player. Lots of hard work, sacrifice and dedication. Humble also. May be this is the Austrian work ethic like the terminator Arnold. Lol.
Unlike Krygios. Total waste of talent.
I鈥檓 just so blessed to watch such high quality tennis from these 2 champions.

Definitely the match of the year. As a lifelong Nadal fan, I have no shame in admitting that he lost to the better player. Rafa played probably 85% of his best on this surface and still lost. Well done Dom Thiem.
