•   Dominic Thiem was down a break in the deciding set, but rallied to notch his fourth ATP World Tour title.
•   The World No. 19 beat Rafael Nadal in a third set tie-break in the semi-finals and improved to 4-0 in deciding tie-breaks on Sunday.
•   Among players born in the 1990s, Thiem’s title total only trails that of Milos Raonic (8).
•   Almagro was playing for his first title since Nice 2012 (d. Baker). He had overturned a 15-match losing streak to countryman David Ferrer in the semi-finals.
•   Cabal/Farah earned their fifth team title in one hour over Cervantes/Lorenzi.
•   The top seeds saved all five break points faced while converting four of five break points on the Cervantes/Lorenzi serve.


Thiem: “It’s the best of my titles so far because the tournament draw was so strong.

“It’s tough to stay focused and ready mentally. All the players who play here have a lot of experience. It’s something you cannot simulate. You just need to be in that situation to become strong mentally. I’m a bit older, more experienced. Even if you beat Nadal in the semis, you still want to win in the final. I didn’t think much about the victory yesterday and focused on the final today.

“You have to be aggressive against these great players. If you let them dictate, you’ll always be second best.”

Farah: “[Juan Sebastian] and I thought that we played at a high level, and the score said it all. After we got the first break, we both returned very well. We were very relaxed in the second set and stayed focused.”

Cabal: “We’re really happy to get the title in Buenos Aires,” Cabal added. “We felt good both on and off the court here. We were good in the key moments today.”
