Well let's hope so, would be better for Thiem.

Not just the draw, the schedule too.

Particularly this year, the new. "night session" .. late September, early October .. wait and see.

Let's look at it from the point of view of the three players. Where would Rafa prefer Thiem to be? In Novak's half. Where would Thiem prefer that he be placed? In Novak's half...... 2/3 prefer this scenario and that is what a balanced draw would be like if we were to go by clay performances in the recent years.

Sounds very good to me. Thiem - Djokovic has potential to be a great match unlike Nadal / Thiem (6-2 6-2 6-3 6-3 6-4 6-0 6-4 6-3 6-2 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1).

Fair enough. That way the second best clay-courter in the recent years, Thiem, will be playing the third best clay-courter, Djokovic, if they both get to the semifinal, and the winner of the two will be playing the GOAT clay-courter in the final.

Hope that happens.

I, as a Thiem fan, really hope Dominic lands in Djokovic’s half. But I have a bad feeling it will go the other way round. Hopefully I’m wrong.
