    That's so weird. He shouldn't act like such a baby just because he was losing

    Novak looks like a completely different guy. Thiem badly needs this 3rd set to have a chance.

    Agree - I think this'll be over real quick if he doesn't win the 3rd.

    Sorry guys, I gotta take the blame for this one - I literally turned the telecast on when Thiem had 2 match points at 5-3 40-15. :rolleyes:

    I want to know how Thiem got that spin for the ball to kick left on his one-handed backhand that hit the line during Djokovic's last service game.

    While I like Djoko, it's nice that someone else gets a shot at the slam. It's gonna be mayhem tomorrow with him going up against a well rested Rafa.

    Yup. it was a straight sets affair. Still - it's another shot tho for someone outside the Big 4

    Barty! I love her game so much.

    Hate it for Vondrousova, who played so well over the two weeks but just had nothing left in the tank today.

    Pretty much the one-sided final we were expecting ever since the bottom half got decimated. Super happy for Barty, but can't help but feel sad for Amanda who missed a golden chance yesterday to be in this position.

    That is one seriously weird Top 10 to look at (specifically Barty & Bertens so high), but also so full of great players. I'll say it again - this is a golden age for women's tennis. :rockin:

    Happy for Barty.

    Top seeded Canadian Junior Girl Fernandez won the title. 16 years old. The talent we have right now is crazy. She was runner up at the Aussie as well

    Love this random tidbit about her ..

    Barty, 23, quit tennis to play professional cricket in 2014, but returned to the sport 17 months later.

    Thiem is just unloading on his backhand. That drop shot was awesome by Nadal there tho.

    Good lord Thiem is murdering the ball. If he stays hot for a couple hours this could be an all-timer
