Dominic Thiem says he has no regrets at all despite pinpointing the moment when the Australian Open final got away from him.
Thiem was within one set of winning his maiden Grand slam title at the Australian Open against Novak Djokovic, and he had a break-point in the fourth set while 2-1 up.
Converting it would have put him in an incredibly strong position, but Djokovic survived and went on the win the match.
“In the last two sets, I definitely gave everything I had,” Thiem told reporters after the match. “Novak is part of three guys who are by far the best players ever who played tennis.
“If you play a Grand Slam final against him, it’s always going to be a match where very small details are deciding [it].
“Maybe I could have converted the break point in the fourth set where I could have the 2-1 lead.
“Of course, there were some small mistakes here and there, but they’re happening.
“At the end it was a super close five-setter. I don’t really regret anything.”
