Hope lol. Djokovic and Nadal don't hope, they just do. I suppose that tells you the difference in mindset.Target has to be RG next season. He can beat anyone not called Nadal on the dirt and is getting closer in their duels.
Probably has to hope he stays other side and Djokovic can peak v Nadal and take him out.
Nadal won in 4 sets with 2 bagels in 2019, at this rate of improvement it'll take Thiem another 4 RGs to win the title.
