Thiem wins Swiss Open title

The 21-year-old Dominic Thiem beat Belgian top seed David Goffin 7-5, 6-2 to win Sunday's Swiss Open Gstaad final.

This is the Austrian’s third tournament win of the year having won already in Nice and Umag.

Goffin, who did not look at his best on Sunday, battled to hurt Thiem in anyway particularly with his serve.

The top-seeded Belgian did lead in both sets but was not consistent enough to make it count.

In the first set Thiem broke first to lead 3-1. Goffin then broke back winning four consecutive games to lead 5-3.

Thiem, though dug in using heavy topspin shots and clawed his way back. Goffin served for the set at 5-4 up but ended up dropping serve thanks to sloppy play and a double fault on break point.

Thiem eventually won the first set 7-5 after Goffin missed a volley.

Goffin broke serve in the opening game of the second set but got broken right back and it was downhill from there. 

Overall Thiem was the better player on the day and ran out a comfortable winner, winning the second set 6-2.
