Rublev vs Thiem Prediction

Thiem gets pushed on the back foot by Rublev’s aggressive style of tennis, from which the Austrian is unable to recover. The former US Open champion may have a chance to mount a comeback because the World No. 6 occasionally blows a sizable advantage. The team is now going through a short period of difficulty and would dearly desire to get out of it soon, especially at a Major. Even at his best, Thiem has a difficult opponent in Rublev, thus the Russian is expected to win once more.

Prediction: Rublev to win in 5
