Well done Rafa, was always going to be tough for Thiem playing 4 consecutive days, especially against and absolute God on Clay like Rafa Nadal.

I forgot it was even on. After Barty winning it felt like the end of the slam lol. I checked the ATP rankings when going to bed last night, realised the mens comp weren't finished yet, saw it was 1 set all, shrugged and went to sleep. Which is embarrassing conduct as a lifelong ATP fanatic, but after Barty's triumph, a NID repeat of last year's final was fairly meh.

I kind of understand the sentiment but the first two sets last night was absorbing...

Thiem has the game to beat Nadal. Nadal doesn't just gift sets to anyone on clay. But doing that over Bo5, after beating the number 1 player in the world in a Bo5 the day before....he just had nothing left when Nadal went up a gear after a "toilet" break when he lost the 2nd set.

Well done Ash Barty

No tantrums / umpire abuse
No grunting / groaning / shrieking
Not a single sheet of sandpaper in sight!!
Doesn't need to cheat to win (hi Davey Warner and Captain Snooze!!)

All Australian sport participants should look at the way she goes about it.

Roland Garros was fun to go. They let you go to Lenglen, and Chatrier for free for a last match if it is past like 4:30 pm or 5. I do hate the smoking on the grounds though.
