Dominic Thiem

Dominic surprised everyone after beating Novak Djokovic at the semi-final. Not only did he win the match but the match itself had a lot of ups and downs as one player changes the other one in the lead and the same manner kept happening until Thiem finally managed to break Djokovic at 5 games to 6 in the 5th set. This match really showed the growth of Thiem. Austrian held up and played to the pressure he had and managed to come out on top.

He is also considered to be one of the top players on clay ground. He has also beaten Nadal this year at Barcelona in straight sets and won the title after that. Thiem is one of the few players who can really give Nadal a good run for his money on clay. Let’s hope that the Austrian will show up at the same form he used to show us this tournament. As a result, anything can happen.

 

Rafael Nadal

The previous champion who is looking pretty unstoppable at the moment. Nadal has only lost a single set at this tournament. He had no problems with one of the biggest stars Roger Federer in the semi-final as well. Nadal won that match in straight sets in little more than 2 hours. Every other player knows that if they want to get on top of ATP rankings and especially at the matches on clay, they will have to go past Nadal. This guy is just incredible on clay ground and he will be a favorite in every match he plays on this specific ground. Nadal is hoping to become the first player to win 12 or more titles at the same grand slam, moving past Margaret Court who won 11 Australian Opens and this would be an incredible achievement.
