Alexander Zverev said that there will be a new Grand Slam winner in 2020. Dominic Thiem feels happy to hear it. The Austrian said: "It always means a lot if, like a top player like him says something like that, because there is always truth in that.
That's very nice to hear. I think that for sure we can do it next year. We are all playing great tennis. Sascha, Stefanos, me, some other guys. I think, or I also said before already, I'm pretty sure that we're going to see a new and young Grand Slam champion next year."
On Stefanos Tsitsipas, Thiem added: "He played great today. He played great throughout the whole tournament. I mean, he's the champion, and he deserves it 100%. I think also that he's great for tennis because he has a very attractive game style, one-handed backhand, comes in a lot.
Very beautiful technique, as well. It's great that he's up on the top. It's great that he's going to fight for the big titles in the future. I'm 100% sure of that. I'm also very sure of the fact that I can challenge him in every single match we're going to play.
As I said on the court, as I said in Beijing, I really hope that we're going to have a lot of big matches coming, the two of us. And of course also me and then the other young guys in the next years."
