The two players finish the warm-up exercises on the imposing court of 02 in London. This year, yes, without an audience due to the Covid19 pandemic.

On hard court they have only been measured twice, with a victory for each player, although it was Thiem who prevailed in the last one, precisely this year, in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.

This will be the 15th confrontation between two players in a duel that is already becoming one of the great classics of the circuit. At the moment, the Spaniard dominates the face-to-face with nine wins, in contrast to the five achieved by the Austrian player.

Dominic Thiem, for his part, won his first ATP title at the US Open last September. In addition, in this 2020 he reached the final of the Australian Open, although at Roland Garros he could not pass the quarterfinals.

This will be the 7th tournament in which Rafa Nadal participates this season. The Manacor player won victories at Roland Garros and Acapulco, in addition to playing the final at the ATP Cup and reaching the semi-finals at the Masters 1000 in Paris.

Dominic Thiem also prevailed in his first meeting in these ATP Finals. The Austrian player defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in a disputed three-set match (7-6, 4-6, 6-3).

This is one of the few tournaments that still resist Rafa Nadal. He has participated in the Masters Cup nine times throughout his career and his best result was the finals he reached in 2010 and 2013.

In this way, if the Spanish tennis player managed to prevail in this match against Thiem, he would certify his pass to the semifinals of the tournament for the sixth time in his career, the first since 2015.

Nadal faces his second match in the Masters Cup after beating Russian Andrey Rublev in his debut in straight sets (6-3, 6-4).

Thus, we are witnessing an impressive duel between the current numbers 2 and 3 of the ATP ranking to decide who will be the first classified in Group B in this round robin that will be played until next Friday.
