I'm not part of a 'Fab Four' says modest Thiem | Yahoo Sports


Dominic Thiem says he is not yet part of a “Fab Four” at the top of men’s tennis despite becoming only the second player to record five career wins against Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic on Saturday. After several years spent knocking on the door, the 27-year-old Austrian joined the Grand Slam winners’ club this year when he won the U.S. Open, and at the ATP Finals in London this week he has beaten Nadal and Djokovic. Thiem said he got lucky against world number one Djokovic in a semi-final lasting almost three hours on Saturday, squandering four match points in the second-set tiebreak, then coming back from 0-4 in the deciding-set breaker to win 7-5 6-7(10) 7-6(5).
