Just your average, run of the mill brainless ballbasher . now he can't even get wins in his favorite level of event , the 250. Sucks for him. Hopefully, if anything this yea and his downfall will open eyes
He's not my favourite player but surely he's too nice to deserve this pasting .

Also, how does such a talented, humble, kind young man with a unique game earn so many haters?
If this isn't vulturing then I don't know what is. Shameless, greedy vulturing.

Yeah because he needs so much money...He tanked and tried to vulture at the same time. Should be fined for that effort.

Good riddance, this vulture has no business being in the top 10.

Yeah, Thiem lost this one pretty much fair and square. It seemed to me that he tried and faltered against a better player across the net.

Well done, Bas.

Look at Thiem's schedule for next couple of weeks. You cannot say that that isn't vulturing. Trying to vulture so he can stay in the top 10. He's like Wozniacki

How is it stupidity? He plays almost every single week. That's vulturing. You get it now?

It's even worse, than vulturing. Because he has no respect to the crowd. Shows up only to get a check

This thread is confusing, Thiem is both vulture and ballbasher and at the same time he isn't either.

The logic in this thread is worse than Thiem's current attitude and level.

Look, I have no problem with this as a person. He is good with fans , he is very likeable , as a person. But his game is basic ballbasher style , there is nothing unique or interesting about it. In my opinion he is incredibly over ranked. Top 10 onclay, sure but barely top 30 everywhere else.
