Another match scheduled for today between Schwartzman and Thiem where I will bet on Dominic to win in straight sets. Schwartzman played in a decent way yesterday but Thiem is much more better player.
In fact, Schwartzman suffered a lot against Opelka yesterday (as expected) and he won only after 2 hours and 12 minutes of play. Schwartzman never had positive results on this surface as his best result in the last 3 years is a final in Antwerp lost against Gasquet in straight sets (last year). I was expecting him to lose yesterday but he was still able to win losing the 2nd set only in the tiebreak. Even if he won, I'm not impressed and I think that he will lose easily against Thiem.
On the other hand, Thiem plays much more better here. Even if his favourite surface is clay and even if he doesn't feel that comfortable on this surface, he had much more better results that Schwartzman. Also, he played in Washington last week winning in straight sets against Laaksonen the first round and losing the next match against Anderson in 3 sets after 2 hours and 51 minutes of play (he had match point) so he will be absolutely ready to play this match. He had time to rest and he will be fully motivated to play this very important tournament.
These two players met 3 times and Thiem always won in straight sets. I'm expecting the same today. I really like odds for Thiem to win in straight sets as I think that right odds should be around 1,53
