Actually watching the match I saw how Melzer does well against Thiem. his game is pretty much build to be a nightmare fro Thiem. He has a high looping forehand which lacks pace which goes high to Thiem's backhand so he has to generate all his own pace ( causing him to miss quite often). He also has a backhand he can take balls on the rise with, Dominic hits with a lot of spin so that's perfect for someone who takes the ball early on the backhand side.
Lost it the breaker. Was up 4-1 with two serves to come. Missed a sitter at 4-4 and DF'd at 5-5 too. If he won the breaker he wins the match for sure. Melzer played well though. Never mind the morons who don't know shit about tennis. Least he got two clay wins this week. That is an improvement from MC.
