Thiem saved 5 straight match points in the tiebreak, but couldn't quite dig out the victory. Overall he seemed a lot more comfortable here than at Queen's.

I enjoyed Boodeles last year and the Youtube channel is excellent so I watched the 2nd set of this match when I cam home from work. Thiem looked more comfortable on grass than I had expected and fought well but Anderson's bigger serve and firepower gave him the advantage and he always looked like the winner. I was disappointed in the atmosphere though. After all the entertainment last year, both players today acted like it was an ATP match. I hardly saw either crack a smile and the post-match interviews were very dull. Both guys should remember this is an exhibition and they could at least show a bit of personality. It's no wonder the court was only half full.

I really hope Djokovic is playing this week because it is a bit of a let-down after last year.
