A record eighth Australian Open title awaits the world number two Djokovic but out to try and spoil his party will be the fifth seeded Austrian Thiem who has never reached a Grand Slam final other than Roland Garros before this. And as Thiem said, he is used to playing the masters of the respective surfaces in the finals and this might not be any different – having twice now played Rafael Nadal at the French Open final.
What’s interesting is these two have played each other 11 times with Djokovic leading 7-4 on head to head but over the last four encounters, Thiem holds a 3-1 advantage. Two of those victories came on clay while the third on indoor courts, but on hard court surfaces Thiem has won nothing.
And while Thiem has beaten Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev on his way to getting to the final, Djokovic’s entry to the final has seen him drop just one set and that came in round one. Since then Djokovic has only improved as was seen in his straight-set drubbing of Roger Federer in the semifinal, albeit an injured one at that.
