Djokovic will be back stronger than ever in 2022, says Thiem

Medvedev
prevented
Djokovic
from
becoming
the
first
man
since
Rod
Laver
in
1969
to
win
all
four
grand
slams
in
a
single
year,
beating
him
6-4
6-4
6-4
in
Sunday’s
thrilling
showpiece.

Djokovic
was
seen
in
tears
during
the
third
set
as
his
hopes
of
adding
the
US
Open
to
his
run
of
wins
at
the
Australian
Open,
French
Open
and
Wimbledon
this
year
slipped
away.

Djokovic
sees
Grand
Slam
dream
shattered;
Medvedev
triumphs
in
New
York

But
Thiem
tipped
Djokovic
to
bounce
back
from
the
disappointment
of
defeat
and
return
in
2022
even
stronger.

“One
unbelievable
goal
slipped
out
of
his
hands
yesterday,”
Thiem
told
Stats
Perform.

“I
expect
him
to
be
as
strong
as
ever
in
2022.
I
think
after
he
won
in
Roland
Garros,
everybody
was
only
talking
about
the
calendar
slam

first
about
the
golden
slam,
and
then
about
the
calendar
slam.

“He
[Djokovic]
was
under
pressure.
Nobody
can
feel
that
or
anything
like
that
because
of
it
being
the
calendar
slam.

“I
can
feel
it
in
a
smaller
way,
probably
from
last
year’s
final
and
from
some
other
matches.
And
at
some
points
it’s
just
getting
to
you.
And
so,
I
really
felt
for
him
as
well
towards
the
end
of
the
match.

“So,
it
can
happen
that
it
also
makes
him
even
stronger
next
year
when
all
these
talks
and
all
this
pressure
is
not
that
big
anymore.”

Thiem,
who
missed
the
tournament
with
a
wrist
injury
that
will
rule
him
out
until
2022,
believes
nerves
were
a
factor
in
Djokovic’s
defeat
but
agreed
with
Medvedev’s
assessment
of
the
Serbian
as
the
greatest
of
all
time

though
he
could
not
set
him
apart
from
Roger
Federer
and
Rafael
Nadal.

“For
me,
there
are
three
GOATs
in
the
game,
and
each
of
them
has
achieved
something
very
unique,”
Thiem
said
of
the
trio
locked
on
20
major
titles
each.

“So
it’s
still
the
same
for
me
as
it
was
before.
The
three
of
them
are
the
best
in
the
history
to
me.

“And
I’m
only
super
happy
to
be
in
the
same
era
with
them
and
to
be
able
to
compete
with
them.
Hopefully
many
more
times
next
year
again.”
