The young gun or the oldish former top 12 player!
Overall quite the interesting match up.

I wonder what Thiem will say about this in his pre-match write-up :lol:

I want to meet the bloke supporting Troicki here and shake their hand.

very interesting draw and really hard to call, except that Thiem should be somehow favorite, just by default, but it's really an obscure match to predict.

So they gave him the WC after all, good to see

I'd like to see Troicki's level here, win or lose

If Troicki has followed Cilic's example and worked hard on his game while he was away, he could be tricky. If he just spent his time partying then this will be an easy win for Thiem. I suspect the latter is true and Thiem will win this in 2 easy sets.

Viktor´s level probably isn´t good enough at this moment, but if he can beat Thiem than good for him and happy that he got WC after all to this tournament

"on the court" sounds just fine and I believe that Thiem will do that as Troicki is completely off form. On the other hand it is difficult to imagine anyone destroying Viktor as he's, I think, 6'4", and weighs about 210 pounds :), and a very nice guy, actually.

I think logically Thiem wins this 9/10 times on both players' forms but I for some reason just feel weird about Thiem's consistency right now (although seeing that L. Mayer reached the Final in Hamburg maybe it wasn't that big of a loss).

Troicki was often hitting with Djokovic and following him around, and he should be very eager to make use of any WC before he drops off top 1000, no way is he going to be a pushover.
