Thiem happy to play 2020 ATP Finals

After defeating Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem will play his second ATP Finals final in a row as he'll try to get his first title.

Last year, Dominic Thiem played final at the 2019 ATP Finals when he faced Stefanos Tsitsipas. He got as close to winning a title as the 3rd set tie-break and this year, he will try to win the title again. After he topped his group, he defeated Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and will now play his second final in a row. After the match, he said:

"It was for sure a mental battle. I got so tight in the second-set tie-break because to play these legends is always going to be something special," said Thiem in an on-court interview. "Playing for the final here at the ATP Finals is also something very special and I thought that after my first big title in New York, maybe I’m going to be a little bit more calm, but that was a mistake, I guess. I was just as tight and as nervous as before. It was so much on the edge that match, like every single match here. The best players in the world are facing off. So I’m just incredibly happy to be through and just [will] try to get ready for tomorrow."

"After I fought so hard to get to the final in the group stage and as well now today. Of course, I will try everything to win the title," said Thiem. "Anyway now we’re going to have again a first-time winner, no matter what happens in the second semi-final. Both of them will fight 100 per cent today and as well tomorrow, but I’m looking forward a lot. It’s going to be the last match of a very special, of a very tough year for everybody, I guess. We’re going to try to put [on] a great show for everybody that is watching."
