In my humble opinion it's quite clear that Thiem by far is the more talented player of the two, combined with a superior mindset. When translating these observations to numbers I would say we're looking at at least five slams for Thiem, while Dimitrov will be lucky to get one or two.

When we talk about talent/natural ability there's no doubt whatsoever that Thiem should be the one having the better career.

Needless to say that he's also a much, much better human being.

I believe both have the game to be slam winners and can be rivals, but Dimitrov is better.

Way too early to call Thiem's career. Which under MTF law means he is bound to win anywhere between 10 and 28 Slams.

Also, why is Gerard Depardieu's lumberjack twin brother choking Thiem?

Resnik would destroy Rasheed in a log carrying contest and that's all that matters.

The increasing restraint among sports journalists in appreciation of Resnik’s achievements is based in certain doubts about the reliability of his statements.
Sounds like the Austrian version of Johnny Groove.

No doubt this could be one of the greatest rivalries in the future.

Tennis has a good chance of remaining classy and relevant. All hope isn't gone, after all. :)


As for the greatest achievements, I believe Thiem could have a better career. I don't know, just a feeling and this "aura" he possesses. Grigor is still my favourite of the two.

too long, can't you just sum it up.
good thread to bump up in 10 years
No. It really is an amazing read, trust me.

If I ever meet him I will buy Hewitt =Legend as many milkshakes he can handle for posting it here.

He's already been in the top 100 and will be again after this week. I know something special when I see it, I haven't been touched by a tennis player on this level since I saw Kuerten play for the first time.

You have the wets for some reason, eh.

I read it few weeks ago when you first post it. And what? He is training hard that's good. One thing he won't struggle is physical power contrary to Dimitrov. He's just naturally build like a beast. I watched his previous match and liked it a lot.

I can agree with that. But it's too early to make anything out of it. He's going to be a factor - but how big remains to be seen.
