Huge first UTS win for Thiem over his big rival Tsitsipas!

QUARTER 4 & MATCH TO THIEM – 14-13 – The Greek has been leading all the way in this quarter but Thiem digs deep and proves more consistent from the baseline on the decisive point. The Greek makes a backhand unforced error. What a performance from Thiem.

9-6 TSITSIPAS – The “-1 serve” card proves efficient for Thiem as the Greek mises his serve.

9-5 TSITSIPAS – Domi mises an apparently easy crosscourt volley coming forward. He is disappointed

5-4 TSITSIPAS – The show is on. Fantastic level of play from both players. Only winners out there.

1-0 THIEM – The Austrian is coming forward and concludes the first point of the 4th quarter at the net.

IT IS ONE QUARTER APIECE! – Tsitsipas, more consistent from the baseline, wins his both serve points at 11-11 and equalize. The battle is on. The Greek needed this quarter.

Goffin wins this thriller! Both players brought on a great show.

GOFFIN PREVAILS IN SUDDEN DEATH

Lopez hit an ace with his lefty slice to start. He goes for the winner on the next point but his forehand goes wide. Goffin ends the match on a backhand winner!! A symbol. It has been his signature shot today.

WE ARE GOING TO SUDDEN DEATH, 19-10 – What a 10 minute of tennis by the 38 years old. Goffin finishes with an underarm serve.

QUARTER 3 GOES TO GOFFIN FINALLY – The Belgian holds and is now leading two quarters to one. 

12-11 GOFFIN – What happens to Goffin at the end of quarters? He is the dominant player and then he gambles.
