90% sounds about right but it wouldn't surprise anyone if it's going to be higher.

we all know what would have happened in the final with Djokovic playing in it.
He bottles it and loses? Currently, he's 3-5 in USO finals. No man has lost more USO finals than Djokovic.

Against current Nadal/Wawrinka/Zverev/Thiem he wouldn't have lost it.
Djokovic is still better on hardcourt than all of them, even on faster one...

OP has really made it a habit to make the worst prediction threads possible

Yes, Thiem is good. We know that. Djokovic was kicked out of the US Open, but we all know what would have happened in the final with Djokovic playing in it.

But has he proved that against Djokovic at slams apart from RG?
the last time they met in a hard court slam final, Thiem outplayed Djokovic until Djokovic did a dubious MTO that disrupted Thiem's rhythm.

You are being too conservative, it should be more like 95%!

In all seriousness though, go to William Hill and put $100 on it, I am sure the return on that bet would be pretty darn good!

Odds are more likely that he would lose. Again.

Not to mention, and this is something I just found out yesterday when watching the US Open final replay on German Eurosport, Thiem had some sort of injury that made it impossible for him to even walk properly after the final according to Matthias Stach (German ES commentator). He didn't specify exactly what it was, only said that it (whatever body part "it" was) was "completely blue", but he also said that Thiem was limping majorly when he thought he was unwatched after the press conference. It's interesting that Dominic never even mentioned this, and it makes you think if his achilles was really ok on Sunday or if he simply decided to remain silent on it as well.

There are players who will always moan about their real and fake injuries because they look for excuses, want to take away glory from their conquerers or try to steal the momentum from their opponents.

And there are players who would rather remain silent and not reveal anything (unless it's obvious and visible to everyone watching) because they respect their opponents and want to win or lose in sportsmanship style
