Using the recently released 2017 ATP set for POTG Tennis, I'm playing a round robin hard court tournament with the Top 8 ranked ATP players at the end of 2017.


Rafael Nadal (ESP)
Roger Federer (SUI)
Gregor Dimitrov (BUL)
Alexander Zverev (GER)
Dominic Thiem (AUT)
Marin Cilic (CRO)
David Goffin (BEL)
Jack Sock (USA)


Points awarded as follows:

Match Win 3-0 = 3 points

Match Win 3-1 = 2 points

Match Win 3-2 = 1 point


Here we go........


Round 1
Match 1

Roger Federer (SUI) -v- Gregor Dimitrov (BUL)

1st Set

Federer notches the first service break in game eight to go up 5-3. Dimitrov can't return the favor in game nine as Federer holds serve to take the Set 6-3. Federer 1-0.

2nd Set

Serve is held through six games and it's 3-3. In game seven Federer once again takes the first service break and goes up 4-3. Both players hold serve in games eight and nine, with Federer serving for the Set in game ten. Federer can't close the door as Dimitrov claims the break, evening the Set at 5-5. Serve holds in eleven and twelve and the Set will be decided by a Tie Breaker. Federer should have slammed the door in game ten as Dimitrov claims the Tie Break to take the Set 7-6. Match even at 1-1.

3rd Set

This looked a lot like the 1st Set. Federer takes the only break and wins the Set 6-3. Federer 2-1.

4th Set

Dimitrov goes up 5-0 thanks to breaks in games two and four, and cruises to a 6-1 Set win. Match even at 2-2.

5th Set

With 1 point up for grabs this is the same as the 4th Set, only different. Federer claims two service breaks and cakewalks to a 6-1 Set victory. Federer 3-2.


Points:
Federer (1)
Dimitrov (0)

Round 1
Match 2


Alexander Zverev (GER) -v- Dominic Thiem (AUT)

1st Set

The players trade breaks in games two and three, leading to a 5-5 score after 10 games. Thiem wins another break in game eleven and is serving for the Set in game twelve. He can't close the deal however, as Zverev returns the favor sending the Set to a Tie Break. The failure to sew things up in game twelve comes back to haunt Thiem as Zverev takes the Tie Break, giving him the Set 7-6. Zverev 1-0.

2nd Set

Courtesy of breaks in games four and six, Thiem is up 5-1 and serving for the Set in game seven. Once again the Austrian can't seal the deal as Zverev wins a break, slightly closing the gap. Thiem steps up in game eight as he breaks the German's serve to claim the Set 6-2. Match even 1-1.

3rd Set

Zverev wins the only service break, allowing him to take the Set 6-4. Zverev 2-1.

4th Set

It was, almost, like deja vu all over again. As in the 2nd Set, Thiem is up 5-1 courtesy of two service breaks and is serving for the Set. Also as in the 2nd Set, Zverev wins a break in game seven to inch a bit closer. Zverev holds in game eight to make it 5-3 but that's as close as he gets. Thiem holds in game nine to claim the Set 6-3. Match even 2-2.

5th Set

Once again it was, almost, like deja vu all over again. As in the 1st Set breaks were traded in games two and three. Serve was held through the next nine games, sending the battle for a single point to the second, and final, Tie Break of the Match. Similar to the 1st Set, Thiem lets a chance slip through his fingers, although this time it doesn't come back to haunt him as he eventually takes the Tie Break, giving him the Set 7-6, and the Match. Thiem 3-2.

Thiem (1)
