Analyzing his maiden Vienna title, Dominic Thiem said: “It’s been an unbelievable year for me in Austria, to win titles in Kitzbühel and now here in Vienna. I have had some troubles to deliver my best tennis in front of these amazing crowds in Kitzbühel and also here in Vienna and now, in the same year, I win both titles.
It is completely unreal to me. Three times this week, I came from one set down. To share the court and final with a guy who became a very close friend in all these years is very nice in one way."
