Well, it was inevitable that one of them was going to suffer a big blow in confidence by losing a 5th straight final and missing a golden opportunity, which ended up being Nishikori.
Great run by Dimitrov though, maybe his most convincing title yet, beating 3 top 10 players on the way. He was peaking at the end of set 1 and remained extremely solid in set 3, deserving champion
I guess you can say that the two of them took turns imploding from 2-2 and 3-3, but it was still a decent match as can be seen from the stats. Some great rallies and good shotmaking by both in patches, wish it could have come at the same time to make a TB though.
Enjoy every moment of tennis. Enjoy the rise of the young, the brilliance of the peak, and the passion of the old. Enjoy dominance, enjoy diversity.
Fight. Drama. Shots. Epic matches, fun stats, tennis!
