He'll be back, whether or not he's learned anything is still in doubt. We had another look into the type of person he is in today's match though, Novak hit a drop shot and umpire Lahyani ruled it wasn't up (two bounces), Zverev challenged it (which I guess you can do this week) and they went to the video replay. On replay it wasn't even that close, it was clear he got it on the 2nd bounce. My point it at this level these guys are so good and have played so much that they know whether or not they got it. Most guys wouldn't even have challenged, but Zverev was just being Zverev.

Novak wonders why he isn't as beloved as Fed and Rafa, well it doesn't help when you say "Stay strong" to someone who abused his ex-girlfriend for a prolonged period of time.

We need a 3rd and deciding set as Djoker saves four match points in set 2 and wins the second set tie-breaker 12-10. Thiem won the opening set 7-5

This has been a fantastic match!

Thiem is 8-3 against the big 3 the last 2 years, he's really become a great player on all surfaces.

Novak up 4-zip in the tie-breaker, now it's 4-4. Make it 5-4 Thiem with the ace.

It took six match points, but Thiem prevails. What a comeback from 4-zip down in that 3rd set tie-breaker.

That win by Thiem guarantees a first time champion of the Nitto ATP Finals as all three guys remaining in the tourney have never lifted the end of season hardware.

"Stay strong"? Ugh, Novak. You, sir, need to take a break from 2020.

Rafa with a great return game and he breaks Medvedev and will serve for the opening set at 5-3

Kinda crazy, Medvedev early on had Nadal in all kinds of trouble in Rafa's service games and yet Nadal gets the break and wins the opening set 6-3

Well, a horrible service game from Nadal and Medvedev is up an early break in set 2.

Medvedev was a point away from being up 5-1 in this 2nd set, now we're back on serve with Rafa serving at 3-4
