Matteo Berrettini, who had already been eliminated from the ATP Finals, topped Dominic Thiem 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 here Thursday in their third and final round-robin contest at this elite, year-end tennis event.

Berrettini became the first Italian to win a match at the ATP Finals. In the 1970s, Corrado Barazzutti and Adriano Panatta qualified for this season-ender - then known as the Grand Prix Masters - but failed to win in three attempts.
