Dominic Thiem came from behind to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 3-6 6-4 6-1 to secure the China Open and his fourth title of the year.
“I think this was one of the best matches I’ve played in my whole career,” Thiem said after sealing his first triumph in Asia.”He played amazing and I hope we have lots more finals in the biggest tournaments. Last year we had a great rivalry so I hope this continues.”
