Aus Open Day 14 - Djokovic Denies Thiem for Slam 17

Catherine, David and Matt bring you one final Tennis Podcast from the 2020 Australian Open after Novak Djokovic beat Dominic Thiem in five sets to win an 8th title in Melbourne and a 17th Grand Slam overall. 

There’s chat about Djokovic’s fast start, the way in which the crowd and Thiem started to rattle him, his time violations, his mid-match lull, and his fifth set resurgence. 

Can he catch Nadal and Federer this year? How will the Olympics affect the Grand Slam race this season? And in what way is Thiem becoming like Andy Murray?
