– Dominic Thiem capped a sublime month of February, which saw him post a 13-1 record, with his fifth career ATP World Tour title and first at the 500 level.
– The 22 year old, who will rise to a career-high World No. 14 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, is the first Austrian to emerge victorious at the tournament since Thomas Muster completed a four-peat in 1996.
– The final was the third on the ATP World Tour between players born in the 1990s. All three have involved Thiem.
– Bernard Tomic was bidding to win a fourth ATP World Tour title in his fifth final.
– Former World No. 1 Max Mirnyi is just two match wins from joining the ‘700 Club’ after teaming with Treat Huey for their first team title.
– Individually, it was Mirnyi’s 49th doubles title and first since Beijing in 2013, while Huey claimed his seventh career crown.


Thiem: “It was unbelievable. These three weeks have been amazing. Winning my first 500 title and first hard-court title, it was just perfect. It was how a final should be, between two young and up-and-coming players. I hope we’re going to play many more finals together. Both of us wanted to win so badly and I’m happy I was the one today.”

Tomic: “It’s not easy, I’d love to win. It could have been huge if I won, but I had a chance. That’s the biggest disappointment, having the chance to win. I’m frustrated with myself… I was leading in the first set and then I lost it and I was up a break in the third and gave away my serve straight away.

“But he was playing very well and he’s an amazing competitor. Every point he’s competing. He was feeling good on court and has been playing well all week. In the final of big tournaments, you have to take your chances in the big moments. I didn’t take it.”

Huey: “It was a tough first round match against Guccione and Tomic and we somehow came out with the win there 14-12 in the tie-break. We took a lot of momentum from that. I was feeling pretty sick the first few days and could barely get out of bed, but as Max said we just need to find a way. We did and we’ve been playing great tennis all week. It’s great to win a title and we’re having fun. The tournament here in Acapulco is unbelievable.”

Mirnyi: “I told Treat that even though we’ve only been together for two months, we’ve been through a lot. We’ve improved on our teamwork and things we need to do. Luckily today, in a big tournament like Acapulco, everything clicked. We played well at the same time which was important.”
