After Thiem's performance , and his upcoming match up against Diego potentially going all the way, there is no doubt in my mind that Nadal being fresh, will clear through to the finals. Djokovic will go through to the final and prevail over Rafa since he has an easier path, and Rafa would be coming from a potential gruelling battle against Diego/Thiem.

Nole will win his RG in 3 or 4 sets in the final.

No one has the level to stop these two.

Djokovic first has Khachanov and then maybe PCB or a new unpredictable Altmaier

Don't look past the next nasal swab
Khachanov is a shadow of his 2018 self and he's regressed. Surely he's not beating 2020 Djokovic. PCB vs Nole might last a lot longer but as long as he doesn't get DQd(which he won't) he'll handle him. Altmaier despite being a Wawrinka lite, won't be able to handle Nole at the big stage in his first match in PC, experience goes to Nole, nor is there any indication that he can channel Staminal mode in his shots while playing.

I wanna believe that there is some threat for the remainder of the tournament to be interesting but it seems NID and inevitable.

And lol, @nasalswab , no way FFT and organisers are gonna stop the tournament if someone tests positive, too much money and pride involved.

Of course it is not NID, neither Djokovic has an easier projected path in Khachanov/Busta/Tsitsi, after Thiem's performance today.

Even if Djokovic made the final, he could e.g. amass two very tough 5-setters whereas Nadal could e.g. have a relatively quick 3 or 4-setter vs Sinner and then an easy SF vs tired winner of Thiem/Schwartzman.

And why would Schwartzman be tired?

If Djokovic amasses a 5-setter against Khachanov or PCB thats his fault, Rafa would dispatch them.

Why is everybody so confident that Novak will make the final? His path is not easy! Nadal’s draw would be easier if not for Thiem! Kachanov on a good day can be trouble to anyone. Busta is at his peak and we all know what happened at the USO (im sure Nole would not want to face him). And Tsisi... we all know what he is capable of when on.

Generally I would agree that at peak level, the current era's 2 best clay courters should play in the final, however there is 1 obstable each at both sides: Tsitsipas for Djokovic and Schwartzman for Nadal.

i disagree, I think Djokovic wants to face PCB again as soon as possible

Khachanov? Who played exactly one good tournament in 2 years? Should take Novak into a fifth? You’re sometimes really delusional. I wouldn’t be surprised if this match is even easier than the Galan one.

I am playing along his hypothetical, you utter idiot. Learn to read. I couldn‘t have made it any clearer by saying it would be his fault if it were to happen.

Why are people acting like Djokovic is invincible just because he beat Ymer, Berankis and Galan 😂 he always finds a way to mess things up at the French and I don't expect this year to be any different

Should be epic. But not sure if Djokovic will reach final. Upset can happen as his form is up and down at the moment. I will prefer Tsitsi vs Thiem final though.
