Roger Federer

2019 Record: 51-8, 4 titles

Federer will try to close out his 2019 on a high.

The year had its ups and downs for the Swiss legend.

For the first time since 2016, Federer failed to win a Slam title.

On the other hand, he finally achieved the historic mark of 100 career ATP Tour titles.

He won a third consecutive title in Basel two weeks ago, his most recent tournament.

Federer withdrew from the Paris Masters 1000 due to the tight schedule.

The additional rest could certainly help him.

Dominic Thiem

Known as a clay specialist throughout his career, Thiem established himself as a strong all-rounder in 2019.

After making it to his first Slam final at Roland Garros in 2018, the Austrian repeated the feat this year.

Thiem also won his first-ever Masters 1000 title, on the hard surface at Indian Wells.

He defeated Federer himself in a three-setter, which further solidified his standing as an all-rounder.

Like Federer, Thiem is also coming off a domestic tournament win.

He captured the Vienna Open for the first time, a title that had eluded him for the past years.

Now, the Austrian will try to make it out of the ATP Finals group for the first time in his career.

Federer vs Thiem – Head-to-Head

Federer and Thiem have met six times, with the Austrian leading the head to head 4-2.

They’ve already met twice in 2019, with Thiem winning both matches.

Federer has the edge on the hard surface, 2-1, with Thiem’s win coming at Indian Wells.

This will be their second consecutive meeting in the group stage.

Federer won last year’s meeting fairly comfortably with a 2-0 score, giving up only five games.

While Thiem has the edge overall and in 2019, the hard surface still suits Federer’s style.

It should be another close match, but the Swiss should win this time around.

Prediction: Federer 2-1, over 22.5 games.
