In Austria, Dominic Thiem has finally realized his childhood dream by winning his another ATP title at Kitzbuehel. This is his first ATP title won in Austria, but it is his 14th ATP title in his career.

During the final round, Thiem played against Albert Ramos-Vinolas, a player from Spain. The game between the two ended in 7-6 (0) 6-1 on Saturday at the Generali Open.

Thiem is currently ranked fourth in the world, had a great week. He did not even drop a single set throughout the week, which was the last clay-court event that was held in the season. Winning the high-altitude tournament held at the Austrian Alps was definitely a big childhood dream for the player.

He said, “It is absolutely incredible, one of my biggest dreams since I play tennis.” It seems that this was the event that Thiem had his eyes on ever since he was 6 years old.

Although Thiem was able to reach the final round in 2014, he was not able to claim victory as David Goffin stopped him.

“There is no better thing for an athlete than having this kind of success in front of your home crowd.

Dominic Thiem joins fellow top players, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic to be the only players who have managed to win three tournaments within this season.
