Thiem is not afraid to thwack the ball when given the chance and is willing to move up to the baseline and even the net.

Offensive Baseliner No?

He reminds me of a young Fernando Gonzalez. Going for a winner on almost every shot.

What's the obsession with taking a young player and comparing them to an established star all about?

The similarities end not much further on from them both being right-handed and possessing one-handed backhands.

Meh. I mean yes, but it's a pretty lazy comparison. I don't think their stroke production is the same. If Thiem hit a 2HBH that comparison probably wouldn't be thrown out there.

Somewhat, yes. Pretty close.

I don't see much. But then again, I don't see many similarities between Dimitrov and Federer's game either.
