Peaking Thiem and then Federer without a brain.

Good tournament for the Austrian.

IW Final: Thiem def. Federer 3-6 6-3 7-5

Thiem started peaking mid second set as Federer warmed him up with bad approaches/net rushes....

in the 3rd set Federer re-grouped, stayed in rallies well, served incredibly well, still couldn't pass though...

Thiem had one bad service game which he put on a silver platter for Federer at 3-4, but Federer rejected the gift at 0-30.

Thiem then took the match on his own terms the last 2 games.



Well worth staying up for. Gonna enjoy these 3 hrs of sleep with good conscounce.

All credit goes to Thiem, but Federer can be so brilliant and so clueless at the same time.

Really baffling at the end there with some of his decisions.

fed needs to work on those BPs conversions. This wasn't just aces or winners everytime on BPs, fed was missing some makeable shots... it would have likely won him the match in 2 sets and at worst he should have won it in 3 sets.


Needs this to be fixed. Dom deserved it and was great off the ground kudos to him.

Is this possible to loose two IW finals in a row by idiotic dropshots in last games?
FEDERER: Yes
PS. Thiem playes great, ultra-aggressive, not making too many errors
So Federer became passive and that's how he lost.

Federer played mindless tennis and was poor off the ground. He netrushed at horrible times that cost him in the second set when he got broken and again in the third set when he had a chance to break Thiem. Looks like AO 2018 might have been Roger's last big title.

Wow Dominic first big title on the Tour comes in Hard-courts and against Roger :wow:

Amazing after 1 Final, 2 Semi-Finals in Roland Garros and multiple Clay Masters Finals.

After that USO Match against Rafa he became a legit contender on all surfaces.

When will Federer stop choking the big tournaments. It has been a trend for exactly one whole year :smash:

Thiem winning a first masters on HC who would have thought. Unbelievable

Happy and SAD at the same time.

Thiem starts the year 3-4 and wins a M1000 on HC.

:yeah:

Kinda sad about Federers form but its Thiems day

I must admit I didn't think Thiem had what it took to win this. I actually thought he would never win a big title outside of clay, but I have been proven wrong. Congrats to Thiem and his fans.

Such a shame Federer can't find the motivation to win these days once No1e is out of the picture.

Thiem was fearless in the 3rd set. Ballbashed the lines and went for his shots. Roger finally gets burned for his poor 2nd sets.

I thinK Roger would win a match like this if it was 5 sets. But anyone can lose in a 3 set match if a ballbasher like Thiem gets hot. And thats what he did.

Hilarious Domi got his first masters on fucking hardcourt. :lol:

Nice match with fearless ballbashing from Thiem and Fed gifting his serve twice with brainless actions. Nice match though, very tense and close till the end. :yeah:

Federer's level dropped throughout the match. First set was good, the rest was very uninspiring from him. Kudos to Thiem for holding on, specially after a the last couple of games of the first set where Roger outplayed him.

Dominic winning his first M1000 on HC though, you can't make that up :lol:

Roger :hug:

Antoher blow for Raonic and Nishikori
