Dominic Thiem reconfirmed his status as one of the fittest players after confinement by winning the triumph at the Berlin exhibition tournament, after beating the final 6-7- (4), 6-4 and 10 -8 to the Italian Matteo Berrettini.
A victory that rewarded the Austrian’s mental strength, who when he seemed to have everything against him managed to force the third and final set, in which Thiem prevailed in the “super tiebreak” 10-8.
Neither Berrettini’s cannon shots, with serves exceeding 220 kilometers per hour, nor the impossibility of forcing a single breaking ball in the entire first set despaired the Austrian player.
A result that allowed Thiem, who last Saturday fell in the final of his tournament, the “Thiem’s 7” against the Russian Andrei Rublev, to win his second tournament after the return to competition, after winning last June in the controversial Adria Tour.
On the contrary, it will be necessary to wait until next Friday to know the winner of the women’s tournament, after the organization’s decision to postpone the final between the Czech Petra Kvitova and the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina in the absence of light due to the delay caused by the Rain falling in the German capital.
