Sebastian Baez vs Dominic Thiem – Match Predictions

Dominic Thiem to Win

It is difficult to take anything away from Baez in this Austrian final affair. The Argentine has only dropped a single set on his path to the final. However, in his path to silverware success stands a rejuvenated Thiem. The Austrian ace would love to lift the trophy in front of his home fans and has shown tenacity. In Kitzbuhel, he has registered comeback wins whenever he was forced on the backfoot and Thiem will fancy his chances against Baez. It is also a grudge match as they have come across each other only once and the Argentine came out on top after a marathon meeting. We are backing Thiem to level their H2H affairs and lift the Austrian Open trophy in his backyard.

2-1 to Dominic Thiem

Since his win over Bagnis, Thiem has been pushed hard by each of his rivals. Zhang, Rinderknech and Djere took sets off him and had the opportunity to knock him out but the trio could not deliver the finishing blow. The Austrian has been buoyed by the home support and will have a leg up as soon as he puts his foot on the court. Baez is the slight favourite in the match and can take a set off him but as previous rivals have realized, downing the resurgent Thiem will not be easy. Based on this, we are expecting a triumph for Thiem in another epic three-set affair with Baez.
