Dominic Thiem won the biggest title of his career by clinching the 2019 Indian Wells Masters on Sunday.

And Federer, after his modest start to the season at the Australian Open, has done his campaign in the Race for London no harm at all: the Dubai title and Indian Wells runner-up spot take him to No4.

"That's why I'm not too disappointed", Federer said.

"You feel like every shot in Dominic's game has got some punch behind it", Federer said during his post-match press conference.

"Just came up against somebody who was on the day a bit better when it really mattered". That's how it goes. It's frustrating and disappointing and sad to some extent, but I have been in these positions so many times.

"I had to get used to Roger's game".

Thiem really showed his might to save a break point and hold at 4-4, and did not allow a nasty fall and bloody elbow to set him back as he edged the 37-year-old three games later to serve for the title.

"It's hard to pinpoint exactly what went wrong". The return he hits on the line at 5-all [in the third set], that's the one I needed, and I couldn't produce that.

Thiem was resilient, hitting hard and with top spin wide to Federer's backhand, and pulled back from 0-40 down, but after nearly seven minutes, Federer got another chance and took it. "It was a very good match until the end and I had to fight to serve it out". So just these little things, you know, that matter today.

"When you feel that way, you take it more positively". Federer won just two more games in the set.

'It feels not real at all, ' added Thiem, the first Austrian to win a masters 1000 title since Thomas Muster at Miami in 1997. It's a massive event to win. "I just got my 100th in Dubai, and I had a good week here". Just fantastic that I got here, my first really big title. What is more, he looked the calmer man, and had the momentum.

"The 37-year-old admitted his surprise that Thiem had not done better in previous years, while also explaining that the power in his serve and groundstrokes could lead to success on clay in the future". With Rafael Nadal's withdrawal, the Swiss will be the fourth seed. "That also always keeps me upbeat, and I feel it's a privilege when I feel this way leaving a tournament", Federer said.

For one day, at least, Thiem was the better player even if he couldn't quite believe it. I can be very happy and proud of that fact. "I feel like he had to come up with the goods, and it did feel like to some extent it was on my racquet".
