What are the latest Australian Open final odds?
The Sun’s Australian Open coverage is brought to you by Betway.
Djokovic leads Thiem in the head-to-head stakes, as he does most players.
The Serb has six wins to the Austrian’s four.
But Thiem has had the whip hand in meetings between the two players recently, winning four of the last five.
And in grand slams, Thiem has two victories to Djokovic’s one – although all three of their slam encounters have been at Roland Garros on Djokovic’s weakest surface of clay.
Thiem’s victory at the O2 Arena in November could therefore be a big psychological boost as it was his first ever over Djokovic on a hard court.
