Tennis: Dimitrov beats Thiem as Nadal prepares to make bow

Published by , Monday 11/13/17 18:30

Grigor Dimitrov launched his bid for glory at the ATP Finals with a 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 victory over Dominic Thiem as Rafael Nadal prepared to start his quest for the biggest title missing from his impressive collection. A single break was enough for Bulgaria's Dimitrov to take the first set. In a tight second set, sixth seed Dimitrov earned a potentially decisive break point in the 11th game but Thiem held firm, lashing a forehand winner down the line and edging ahead 6-5. Austria's Thiem pressed home his advantage, making the most of some nervy play by Dimitrov to break to love and level the match. In a topsy-turvy decider, Dimitrov held his nerve to close it out.
