Novak Djokovic versus Dominic Thiem – that is tension, wear and tear, pure thrill, especially when the meeting in the O2 arena in London increases. A year ago, the two delivered a thriller – back then in the group matches – that only ended in the tie-break of the third set (6: 7, 6: 3, 7: 6). In favor of the Austrian. At the beginning of this year the final of the Australian Open, which went 6: 4 to the Serbs in the 5th round.

And the first semi-final of this year’s season finale is in no way inferior to the previous matches. The superior start, as Djokovic had planned, does not work against the very formidable Thiem. The numbers 1 and 3 of the world rankings fight for every single point on an equal footing, rushing each other into every corner of the court. Until the 27-year-old Lichtenwörther manages the first break with the only breakball of the game shortly before the end of the sentence. He confidently served the sentence home.
