Jiri Vesely vs Dominic Thiem 7/6,7/6,7/6

Battle of the two 22 years old where Thiem seeded 8 for the Championship was the clear favourite,but he failed to deliver and could not find answers to a Czech player serve who is known to take matches to tiebreaks thanks to his firepower serves.

It also  seemed at times that Thiem had run out of steam , perhaps  playing a lot of matches for the last few months without much rest are taking its toll  .
