Dominic Thiem continued to play a fantastic tennis last week , beating Federer in semis and Kohlschreiber in final . Against Federer he was a match point down twice in the second set tie break yet came out winning the match much to the Federer’s disappointment.
“Any match you lose is disappointing. But to lose when you have match point means it was a close one,”said Roger after the match.
The final against Kohlschreiber was interrupted by rain and had to be finished in Monday .It took Thiem two hours and eleven minutes to win the match in three sets 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-4
It is Dominic’s forth tournament win this year and it feels like we will see him to win more this year with this type of appetite . It tastes sweater for him given that fact , that he won these tournaments on three different surfaces . Specially the win on the grass surprised him too .
“It feels absolutely unreal because I came here without any expectations basically, and I’m pretty sure that it’s the most special title for me,” said Thiem. “I didn’t play that well on grass over the past two years, and this tournament was so strong. I’m the winner here, I really cannot believe it.”
