Thiem vs Nishikori (By: Mulder)
Last day of the group stages, that means MATH. With so many scenarios possible nobody understands a thing, but Despite being 0-2, Thiem has still a chance for advancing to the semi finals. However, he looked terrible here in london with not even a set on his name. So i doubt that he can win big here.
Nishikori is second in the group with a win and a loss and has all the chances in the world. Winning today would put Federer under a lot of pressure and winning in straight sets is always better.
Nishikori is playing well indoors this season with a 21-6 record. He is not only leading the H2H with 3-1, but he also destroyed Thiem recently in his home country with 6-3 6-1. Thiem has become more allround but we all know that clay is his favourite surface. Thiem is 9-4 on this surface this season.
% of games won is also important in case both Federer and Nishikori win in straight sets.
