Nadal vs Thiem (By: Frantik)
Finally Nadal is not worried about injuries, and Rafael confidently and rapidly moving towards his goal. Today, the Spaniard is ranked first in the ATP ranking. A native of Mallorca in the summer reached the semifinals of Wimbledon, where in the fighting match lost to Djokovic, and confidently won the tournament in Toronto, where for 5 games gave only 1 set, while the opponents were very serious level: Cilic, Wawrinka ,Paire, Khachanov and Tsitsipas.
Today Nadal came out in the quarterfinals of the us Open 2018. On the way to this point, the Spaniard Ferrer has passed, Pospisil, Khachanov, Basilashvili. Rafa played well, intense, but sometimes fatigue, age and hard coating was given in signs. For example, the last two opponents took one set, and in the match with Khachanov Rafa gave 5 of his innings.
Thiem is a young and rapidly progressing tennis player. The Austrian is only 24 years old, and he already occupies the eighth place in the world ranking, having won 10 titles.
Good serve, powerful attacking blows, speed and non — standard actions are the main trump cards of Dominic. In speed and technique, Thiem must not yield to Nadal. The Austrian three times already beat the Spaniard on his profile cover, on the ground, so on the hard, where Thiem feels even more comfortable, Rafa just have problems during the match.
A native of Wiener Neustadt hardly played in the States. Washington and Cincinnati Thiem missed, and in Toronto at once lost to his awkward opponent to the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas. At the us Open 2018 Dominic defeated Anderson and Basic with the same score 3:0, the young teenager Fritz gave 1 sets, and a serious men's struggle was observed in the fight with another American — Johnson (3:2). As a result, Thiem has passed two local tennis players, Americans, and also has not experienced problems with the experienced served Anderson, who, despite the return (32 years), has produced a lot of high-profile victories this year.
The Spaniard here defends last year's title. He has plenty of motivation. Thiem lost at the US Open last year with a score of 2:3 Del Potro at the 1/8 stage. I expect a fight for every point. Total-the best option for the fight, which will converge experience and youth. Dominic is able to take at least 1 set. He is head and shoulders stronger than the previous opponents of Rafa, and they, for a moment, took in the two previous games 2 sets.
