Interestingly I note that there is a tournament in Belgrade this week, 10 years since they have played there. He was probably happy to check out early and concentrate on winning that instead. Don't want to push too hard with Madrid/Rome/Paris on the horizon.What's wrong with Djoko?
I have not read the article, but it is no surprise with Thiem. Classic case of burn out. For the past few years he has played so many tournaments and that eventually catches up to you in a physical and mental sense.Interesting interview with Thiem, basically saying he lost motivation after winning the US Open v Zverev. Hard to have that extra hunger needed at the moment with no crowds.
Same case for me. For a sport where crowd noise is so controlled and regulated during matchplay, you don't realise how crucial crowds are for the viewing experience.I must admit, my interest in the tennis season is at an all-time low. We need fans back ASAP and the season to return to normal
Yeah me too, I think he could, just moves so well. I think he makes a few too many loose errors out of nowhere to really threaten for slams just yet, but he’s getting there.Maybe tsitsipas can challenge Nadal in Paris. I'm liking his form
