Grigor Dimitrov edges Dominic Thiem on his London debut — ATP Finals

"It isn't easy to come out here and play this tournament for the first time".

Of course, in the modern game ways have been found to combine the two.

Thiem grew in confidence as the match progressed into the second set and thanks to a higher percentage of first serves put the pressure on Dimitrov's shoulders, who was broken in the 12th game of the second set to force the decider.

The fourth seed was not as fortunate in game six, though, as a forehand miss handed Dimitrov another opportunity which he did not let slip before wrapping up the first set by holding to love. The Bulgarian would outlast the world No. 4, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5.

He further tweeted expressing his disappointment in the matter which if translated means that "Dirty Politics has started". The Patel agitation leader has denied that it's him in the video and has accused BJP of hatching a plot to defame him.

Both players began the encounter hitting the ball crisply from the baseline but Thiem was the first to be broken in the sixth game of the match and Dimitrov maintained the advantage to close out the opening set without facing a single break point.

Instead of sending the match in the tie break, Dominic played an very bad service game to get broken again and fell 6-5 behind, hitting costly double faults to reduce his chances, and Dimitrov sealed the deal with a solid hold in game 12.

Thiem, playing in London for the second consecutive year, saw his record drop to 2-1 against Dimitrov, whom he saved five match points to beat at the Madrid Open earlier this year.

In an error-strewn finale, it was somewhat fitting that a shot long from Thiem clinched victory for Dimitrov.
