#2. Thiem won a set against Andy Murray in his maiden ATP 500 tournament
 

Thiem gave Murray a scare at his maiden ATP 500 tournament at Rotterdam

After winning his first Grand Slam match at the 2014 Australian Open, Thiem qualified for the Rotterdam Open, his maiden ATP 500 tournament, defeating France’s Kenny de Schepper and Slovakia’s Adrian Sikora. In the first round, he was up against three-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist Jarkko Nieminen, whom he defeated in three sets to set up a second round encounter against Andy Murray.Murray expectedly took the first set 6-4 but Thiem rebounded by surprisingly winning the second set 6-3. However, Thiem could not produce the upset he wanted to produce as the Scot kept his cool and won the third set 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals where he would lose to eventual runner-up Marin Cilic in straight sets.
