Thiem made his Tour Finals debut Monday. This year the crew includes both Roger Federer and the highly regarded Roger Federer cover band that performs under the name Grigor Dimitrov.

World number 6 Grigor Dimitrov notched his 45th victory of the season and kicked off his maiden ATP finals campaign with a hard-fought 6-3 5-7 7-5 win over Dominic Thiem, in 2 hours and 21 minutes. Also impressive, from the side view, is how he barely kept his body from toppling into the net, which would have lost him the point he'd just won so impressively.

Dimitrov, playing his first match at the ATP Finals, fell behind 0-15 at 6-5 but converted on his third match point for the win.

The fourth seed was not as fortunate in game six, though, as a forehand miss handed Dimitrov another opportunity which he did not let slip before wrapping up the first set by holding to love.

"There's always a little bit of tension before every match".

"It, for me, was just one of those new experiences that I think I'm going to remember for the rest of my life, I think appreciate for the rest of my life", Dimitrov said.

Facing break point at 5-5 in the second, Thiem produced a forehand victor to deny Dimitrov an opportunity to serve for the match, and then broke to love in the following game to level.

That match was a prelude to a gut-wrenching defeat in Madrid where Dimitrov squandered five match points before bowing 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (9).

In a topsy-turvy decider, Dimitrov engineered a break and served for the match only for Thiem to hit back, but that only brought a stay of execution for the Austrian, who served two double faults to hand the advantage back to his opponent. I was like, Not again, definitely not again.
