Points won by each set: [ 37-25, 25-12, 31-26 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
23 % Djokovic – 17 of 73
19 % Thiem – 16 of 83

The scoreline is a bit deceptive because Thiem [13] was dictating the pace of the match throughout making impressive winners off both sides. His serve didn’t function as good as he needed, and Djokovic [1] took advantage of it with his rock-solid game. In the 3rd set the 23-year-old Austrian led 3:0* but lost five games in succession, then had a break point in the 10th game.
