One of the matches of the year.

Incredible level from Thiem for the most part. Consistent, aggressive stuff and plenty for the highlight reel.

Djokovic was pushed back, he was grinding and showing will but it just wasn't enough in the end against an opponent who was in the zone.

Djokovic vs Federer will now decide who advances. Cool.

Damn it, Nadal is going to get the number 1 rank. Sickening.

Good match though.

Unbelievable win from Thiem. Absolutely massive hitting off of both wings, and dropped huge bombs on the first serve too. The best he has ever played on a hardcourt, even better than his US Open match against Rafa last year and his Indian Wells final performance against Roger this year.

One of the most exciting matches of the year.

WHAT A MATCH

Kudos to both, they really pushed weach other to the limit.
Thiem looked done after the choke *6-5 but somehow found the right shots to come back in the TB

Epic match, I have no words...

Best match this year except maybe Djoko-Fed in Wimbledon final, quality and drama was peaking, especially in the end.
Demonic, you f...... BEAST!

I'm still shaking with emotions.

Dear God, this has to be one of the best matches I've ever seen. The hitting from Thiem was just purely insane, particularly in the second and the beginning of the third. This rallye alone...

Not gonna play around with you here and keep in mind I hate djokovic with a passion.
But that was the flukiest win I have ever seen in my life.
Nobody should recover from that choke and honestly Thiem is just nowhere near good enough to do that.
Bad day for the sport

Well done, Timi Boy. Great display and showing Djokovic is far from unbeatable.

It's never over till it's really over.. Thiem stumbling several times but getting back up every time and finally closing it out .. already an amazing tournament for him!

Best 3 setter of the year. High level from both for most part. If Djokovic brings any level close to this, Federer will lose. But Djokovic will be nervous. Fed-Djokovic will be full of nervy moments.

I didn't see the last set, but the first two was one player playing tennis, being offensive and daring, and the other pushing to the max with central shots, doing nothing to encourage offensive attacking tennis..

Unless quality drastically picked up in the third, I find it hard how some see this as a top match of the year.

Match of the tournament by far, heck one of the most dramatic matches of the year. I thought Thiem had blown it after failing to serve it out and then going 0-3 in the TB.

I think Thiem is playing better than anyone this tournament. Would love for him to win the whole thing.
