  • How Thiem brought out the big guns against Djokovic, and stuck to them
  • For two hours and 47 minutes on Tuesday, Dominic Thiem looked like a man walking a tightrope as he tried to negotiate his way past Novak Djokovic. Should he step in and go for broke with his inside-out forehand? Should he rifle his backhand down the line with no margin for error? Should he stand his ground on the baseline, rush the net, or even serve and volley? These were all risky tactics, and not ones that come naturally to a man who has had his greatest success grinding out wars of attrition on clay. But Thiem knew there was no

He beat Roger Federer in the Indian Wells final in March, and this fall he won two more titles on the surface, in Beijing and Vienna. At 26, after a lifetime as a diehard dirt-baller, the Austrian seemed to have decided it was time to make some adjustments and branch out. “After the US Open, I made a big step in the right direction, especially with my game on the hard courts, on the faster surfaces,” Thiem said in London this weekend. “I improved

As of Saturday, Nadal’s serve was at “80 percent,” his coach, Carlos Moya, said. Will that be enough for him to compete? We’ll find out Monday night, when Rafa is scheduled to face Alexander Zverev.

But in its two-year existence, this semi-exhibition in Milan, which is open to players 21-and-younger, has also been something of a bellwether event. In 2017, Hyeon Chung won it, and then went on to reach the semifinals at the Australian Open three months later. In 2018, Stefanos Tsitsipas repeated that pattern.
