Two Top 10 Players Warrant Their Own Prediction
 Roger Federer (SUI) vs.  Dominic Thiem (AUT) H2H
Unlike some head-to-head statistics, Federer vs. Thiem’s matches are quite current. Both meetings have occurred in 2016. Federer won in straight sets on plexicushion in Brisbane. Thiem won in straight sets on clay in Rome. With this match taking place on grass, I am not sure how much this recent data actually tells us. Thiem likes to dictate play and takes full swings at the ball. I think Federer can use the lower bounces on grass to his advantage. Roger knows grass better than anyone on tour with 7 Wimbledon title, 3 Wimbledon runner-up finishes, 8 Halle titles, 2 Halle runner-up finishes, and a silver medal on grass. Federer has played 21 tournament finals on grass winning 15 of those events. I think Federer’s surface knowledge will help him to navigate the rising Thiem.
Having said all of that Thiem is capable of winning. If Thiem manages his service games well, I expect a close match that could go either way.
My Prediction: Roger Federer d. Dominic Thiem 6-4, 7-6 (4)
