Thiem is confirmed as the black beast of Federer and beats him in the Masters Cup
Roger Federer debuts with defeat in the Masters Cup. The Swiss tennis player could not beat Dominic Thiem (7-5, 7-5) in their first match in the Borg Group of the masters tournament held in London. With two breaks at the exact moment, together with the permanence of a key service for the win, Thiem is placed as leader with Djokovic and complicates Roger's semifinal pass a lot.
In a type of match that has dominated throughout his career, Federer could not impose himself on the ball rhythm of a Thiem who has proven to have taken the measure to the Swiss. Both sets reached 5-5 and once thereDominic took the pan by the handle to break Roger's service and add two double sets that gave him the victory in the match and the possibility of setting foot in the semifinals.
The statistics do not deceive and in the three clashes of this season, the result has been the same. It happened in the Indian Wells final at the 1000 Masters in Madrid and it is repeated in the Masters Cup. When both are in front and today, Thiem is more than Federer.
