Dominic Thiem produced a flawless performance to edge past the former world #1 Rafael Nadal in a two-set thriller on Tuesday. It was an evenly contested match, and the Austrian performed better in crucial points to snatch the win, 7-6 7-6. The first set of Dominic Thiem’s two matches so far in this campaign have concluded at 7-6, and he trailed both of those tiebreakers by a big margin, 1-4 against Stefanos Tsitsipas and 2-5 against Rafael Nadal.

Dominic Thiem’s straight-set win over Rafael Nadal coupled with Stefanos Tsitsipas’ three-set win over Andrey Rublev (0-2 this week) means the Austrian is through to the semifinals of the ATP Tour Finals as the group winner. World #3 Dominic Thiem failed cheaply against Matteo Berrettini in his final round-robin match last year after defeating Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in the previous matches. However, he would be motivated to remain unbeaten in this edition as he’s got a slim chance of overtaking Rafael Nadal in the ATP Tour Rankings. The 7-6 7-6 win against Rafael Nadal on Tuesday was undoubtedly the Austrian #1 Dominic Thiem’s best performance since the tour resumption. Though he won the biggest title of his career in the US Open a couple of months ago, his performances in these four months weren’t entirely convincing.

“Honestly, I think I played today a little bit higher level than at the US Open. This was maybe the best match I played since the resuming of the tour. Of course, I still want to improve. I still have a lot of stuff to improve, especially coming to the net and closing out the points better at the net, so that’s my goal for the next preseason,” said Dominic Thiem.

Andrey Rublev arrived in London with a lot of form and momentum on his side, but a very high level of competition in the ATP Tour Finals means he suffered consecutive defeats at the hands of Rafael Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Russian #1 Andrey Rublev is already out of the tournament, but he will want to end his debut ATP Tour Finals campaign as well as the hugely successful 2020 season with a win against Dominic Thiem on Thursday.

Andrey Rublev began his 2020 season by bagging consecutive titles in Doha and Adelaide and added three more to his collections after the tour resumption in Hamburg, Vienna (IH), and St.Petersburg (IH). These impressive results helped the Russian make his top-10 debut and attain his career-high ranking of #8, which is an incredible achievement considering he struggled with injuries and even exited the top-100 group in the first half of the 2019 season.
