THIEM EXCITED FOR FINAL
The world number three is excited at the prospect of a new winner of the ATP Finals, as neither he nor Nadal or Medvedev have triumphed at the tournament before.
He added: “I am looking forward a lot. It is the last match of a special but tough year for everyone. We will try and pout on a great show for everybody.”

“Playing for the finals here at the ATP Final is also something very special.”
