The Austrian, who reached his first Grand Slam final this year too, won six games in a row from 3-3 inthe first set en-route to claiming a 6-3 6-1 success.

“It’s my first indoor title and it’s really amazing,” Thiem said post-match.

“I felt myself a bit tired at the end but I’m really happy that I made it.

“It always means a lot to win a tournament. There’re not too many guys who win a tournament every year so it’s really special.

“I’m happy that I won my first indoor title in Saint Petersburg.

“I don’t know if I’m coming back to defend the title next year, but I’m surely coming back one day.”
