It's time to talk Djokovic vs Thiem live streams, now the final day of competition is here. We should have expected Dominic Thiem's presence in the final after he upset Rafa the quarter final, but we had to wait for the Austrian to advance over Zverev — which he did in four sets.

How did we get here?  Well, Djokovic won in straight sets over Federer on Thursday night, but Roger's performance is asterisked by groin and back issues. That gives an air of question over how much Djokovic won the match, and how much Federer lost it himself, while Thiem, who staged his upset run, has a bit more momentum. has a a partly-cloudy forecast for Sunday in Melbourne, with a 20% chance of precipitation. Hopefully, the clouds won't shed precipitation part and we can live stream Djokovic vs Thiem together, no matter where on the planet we are, without a hiccup.
