The pair that will lead to the Australian Open 2020 finals in Melbourne on Sunday, February 2 is not at all unexpected. No. 5 D. Thiem after a tough win over No. 7 A. Zverev in sets 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4) will face Djokovic most likely to be with the second part. The two had come back as rivals with Thiem winning four of the ten matches between them.
However, Djokovic himself does not believe Thiem is a worthless opponent as he has consistently been the most persistent competitor of the top three players in recent years (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic). It should be noted that if Thiem wins, he will rise above the twenty-time Grand Slam Federer by claiming No. 3 worldwide. He will also claim the title of the first Austrian to win the Australian Cup and the title of the 150th different national player to have won a Grand Slam.
