Even if he plays like he did against Nadal, Thiem has no chance. Djokovic is on a whole different level in this tournament.
Head to head record is only 6-4 in Djokovic's favour. Hardly the imposing record he has against others. In grand slams Thiem has a 2-1 winning record against Djokovic, however admittedly all three matches were on clay in the French. Regardless, it hardly suggests he has "no chance". Djokovic will be a very short favourite but he isn't unbeatable.

Anyway, Thiem has to get there first. Job not done yet.

Weird stats

Zverev served at 90% in that 3rd Set (37/41), yet he was only 24/37 points won on 1st Serve

Meanwhile Thiem was only 4/16 on 2nd Serve points

The majority of Thiem's wins against Djokovic have been on clay, his best surface.

Though if Thiem makes the final, he's a chance of causing a upset. I think both players are for that matter.
