Below mentioned are the head to head results of Thiem against both the potential opponents he could face in the final.
Dominic Thiem v Andrey Rublev Head to Head
They have played each other four times and Thiem leads 3-1 including a win in this very tournament during the league stages. Before that, Rublev had come away winner on clay at Hamburg in 2019, winning two tie-breakers, while Thiem’s wins had come in Vienna in 2017 and Monte Carlo in 2018.
Dominic Thiem v Matteo Berrettini Head to Head
Thiem and Berrettini have played each other five times with the Austrian holding a very slight 3-2 edge over the Italian. Their last ATP match had seen Berrettini crush Thiem in the ATP Finals, and what’s even more interesting to note is the Italian stole a set off Thiem at the 2018 French Open.

Thiem Juggernaut Rolls On
We had noted this even before the start of the semifinal, Thiem’s been on a roll during this break from ATP tennis. His record during the exhibition tennis time-frame has seen him win 21 of the 23 matches he’s played, giving him the highest win-percentage among players who have been active during this time.
He did face a challenging encounter in the semifinal against Roberto Bautista-Agut, with the Spaniard pouching the first set in a gruelling tie-breaker. However, Thiem showed his class on clay again and came back to win the next two sets quite easily.
What should also help Thiem going into this match is he would be obviously well-rested while his opponent would have played a match just an hour or so before the final. Thiem will be a heavy favourite irrespective of who he faces in the final.
Who Will Thiem Face?
The question then is who will Thiem face in the final. Matteo Berrettini, ranked eighth in the world, had gone into his semifinal against Rublev as a favourite but the Russian is now a set up and leading 2-1 in the second.
An early break of serve for Berrettini could make things interesting and level it out; the Italian being quite capable of this. Thiem will need to just wait it out before he makes his strategy.
