In all his matches has been struggling winning in two tiebreaks agaist Groth before recovering from a set down against Youzhny and Federer.
Kohlschreiber will be playing his 2nd finals this year and has not dropped a set yet. He won against Herbert, Kudla, Stepanek and Del Potro. He is serving well in this tournament, which will which he can then utilise to move Thiem around the baseline. You can ignore that he beat Roger on grass but he is coming back from injury and he is not 100% fit. The German has the edge.
