Thiem is fast rising and has beaten Wawrinka in clay this year. PHM is fading, but will be motivated and have the French crowd on his side. Who wins this?

PHM is more talented but more up and down mentally. However, expect him to pull through in 4 in front of the home crowd.

damn, not the best draw for Domi, Nadal in R2 :sad: PHM could be tough, but Domi ought to have enough for this win.
Thiem in 4.

This is a chance for Thiem to do a Soderling, Nadal was dreadful first two matches last year....

Thiem in 4 and setup a round 2 showdown with Rafa, I can't wait to see Thiem showcase himself against Rafa as Dominic is a very good clay court player and Dull is available for the taking.

In what parallel Universe?!:facepalm:

On topic: Thiem should win this in 4, but hopefully in 3(lets hope he is healthy):D
You obviously haven't watch/played enough tennis to understand who is talented and who is not. Mathieu has good form in his strokes and he even has a decent dropshot, volley and slice... he is a much better natural mover as well, especially on clay...

In the other thread I said it's difficult to define underachiever/overachiever but Mathieu is possibly as close as it can get, an example of someone who underachieved and was in general riddled by injuries.

Enough with this nonsense, have u actually ever seen Thiem play, his groundies are world class and will surely become a GS contender in the future if he improves his fitness level(endurance, footwork, speed). So first of all go watch a Thiem match than we can talk :cool:

I've seen enough matches - saw him against Murray in Rotterdam, Mahut in MC, against Wawrinka in Madrid, and against Simon this week... still Mathieu is more talented...

Is there any reason to be so rude? :rolleyes:

I'm not bothered about this match but both player strike the ball well and PHM was known as a talented shotmaker in his day. PMH always struggles with injuries so this match could depend on how healthy he is.
