Thiem Retains Nice Title

May 22, 2016

 Dominic Thiem is the champion in Nice, successfully defending his title. Dominic Thiem successfully defended his Open de Nice Cote d'Azur title, overcoming a stern test from #NextGen star Alexander Zverev 6-4, 3-6, 6-0 on Saturday.

Thiem claimed his sixth ATP World Tour title and third in 2016, having lifted the trophy on the clay of Buenos Aires and hard courts of the 500-level event in Acapulco. He is the 10th player to retain a tour-level title this year and the second to do so in the seven-year history of the Nice event. Nicolas Almagro also won back-to-back titles in the French city, in 2011-12.

"It's been an unbelievably great week," said Thiem. "The first time I had to defend a title and I made it. Maybe I played better in the three matches before this, but a final is always special. You have so much to win and so much to lose. I played a solid third set and I'm really happy. My arm is a little tired, but I will be ok for Roland Garros on Monday."
