Dominic Thiem lost to Alexander Zverev in the Madrid Masters final on Sunday and then said the German is now the best player in the world beneath Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Raven Klaasen and doubles partner Michael Venus of New Zealand were knocked out in the quarter-finals earlier in the week, while Anderson was eliminated in the opening round in a rare doubles appearance. Obviously the altitude fits me a little bit with my serve, with how I play, with me playing a little bit more aggressive than maybe others.
That left him facing surely the toughest test now in the sport: Rafael Nadal on a clay court. The NextGen star won five titles in 2017, including two Masters 1000 crowns. The 21-year-old Zverev won his eighth career title and second of the season after also winning the Munich Open last weekend. The Austrian dropped the first set against Federico Delbonis in their second round match and was forced to dig deep to turn the match around, eventually prevailing in three 5-7 6-3 7-5.
A Masters 1000 title would mean a lot to me because it's obviously really tough to win one, " said Thiem.
It's the second time Thiem has beaten Nadal in straight sets on clay in as many years.
A similar pattern followed in the second set with Thiem going wide off a straight-forward looking shot to gift Zverev a break point that was converted when a punishing forehand could only be returned into the net.
"With Zverev's three-to-five set record at majors, there is still a big asterisk there in everything he has accomplished, so I don't think his tennis at the moment is quite good enough at the French Open".
"But, you know, after 14 years being in the position that I have been fighting for, important things, I can lose, I can win".
Thiem was the last man to take a defeat, or take a set off, Nadal past year in Rome before the Spaniard began his streak, and he was the man who ended it on Friday, nearly 12 months later.
"It gave me a huge boost of confidence", Thiem said. "Almost everything worked out. Now, I'm in the final again, which is awesome to me". "To be honest, I thought that I was pretty far away before this week started", Thiem said.
