Clearly, Dominic Thiem aim to win 11 games in another one-sided loss on Sunday, He has a few things working for him.
And He’s coming off the biggest Grand Slam win of his career, over Novak Djokovic, in a match that stretched his nerves to the snapping point.
For the last five years or so, Dominic Thiem has been widely touted as Rafael Nadal’s successor at Roland Garros.
No one thinks he’s going to win the title 11 times or anything, but with his heavy topspin and his speedy way around the dirt
the Austrian seems like someone who will be ready to go all the way there whenever Rafa decides to hang up his King of Clay crown.
To his credit, Thiem has tried his best to live up that billing, and has made step by step progress toward that goal.
He beat Nadal at a smaller clay event in Buenos Aires in 2016, and at bigger clay events in Rome and Madrid in 2018, and Barcelona in 2019.
He also staged a five-set epic with the Spaniard at the US Open last year, before falling 7-6 in the fifth set at 2:00 A.M.
The only place where Thiem hasn’t made a run at Rafa is Roland Garros itself. In 2017, he won seven games from Nadal in a semifinal defeat.
In 2018, managed to eke out nine in a straight-set final-round defeat.
Thiem won his first Masters 1000 title – the tier of ATP tournaments below the Grand Slams – by beating Roger Federer at Indian Wells earlier this year
and Rusedski believes the Austrian is a much better player than when he met Nadal in the final 12 months ago.
According to Rusedski “He’s added the sliced backhand, he’s playing a little closer to the baseline, he’s willing to transition forward as well as using the drop shot,”
“So with that extra variety, and his strength and his power from behind the baseline, he’s got a shot.
“I think he also needs to change the variety on his serve to keep Rafa off balance, as well as transitioning sometimes and bringing him in.
“Physically, he also has to stand toe to toe with Rafa. That is something which is demanding mentally and physically.
Base of records, Thiem beat Nadal solidly, in two sets, in the Barcelona final earlier this spring. And he knows what it feels like to play a Roland Garros final.
