Djokovic - Thiem is way better than Djokovic vs Zverev would have been. I don't know, if Thiem somehow wins this he actually has a chance at Ronald Garros as well, so would be weird if he actually won the first 2 slams of the year but that's so far from happening that shouldn't even be talked about. Only concern for me for Thiem against Djokovic is that he plays so far out and Djokovic is at his best for taking ball early and having great angles, just like he did to Nadal last year. All the returns from Thiem are so far back that it leaves the court whole open for Nole, so there's a big chance that Thiem is just returning way far and kind of playing himself out even he manages to get on the ball. They both like to play behind the baseline and not really feeling it on the net, so we are going to see alot of baseline hitting and Thiem can actually hurt Djokovic from there with the amount of power he can produce. There's a definitely a chance for Thiem, that little window but because the point starts with the serve, i think Djokovic just has better returns and better following shots so it might not be possible for Thiem to actually get behind the ball that often as he would like to so therefore, it's most likely 3-1 to Djokovic.
