“It’s a long process”: Dominic Thiem speaks after prestigious win
He was one of the last Slam champions to come from outside of the Big Three. The Austrian winner had an almost immediate negative reaction to his victory and has since completely disintegrated, dropping out of the top 300 athletes in the world as a result.
Dominic, a former world No. 3 tennis player, began his comeback this week in the Atp tournament in Bastad, Argentina. Thiem was ecstatic after his maiden victory in a press conference “Quite some time has passed since our last meeting.
I haven’t won in 14 months, so I’m in a strange place.
It’s been a rough few months, but I think it’s also been a terrific learning experience. I’m overjoyed to have taken home the prize here today.
Even though I had a rough start and suffered a lot throughout the match, it was difficult for me to close it out following so many losses. At the end of matches, I need to calm down a bit more.”
Thief in Bastad’s Quarters
Tennis star Dominic Thiem is currently in the quarterfinals of the competition after his surprising victory over Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round of play.
Thiem gave a press conference where he displayed some of his older strokes and described his predicament “It’s great to be here, I’m pleased to have won again, and I’m looking forward to the next match. I’ve gained a lot of confidence after beating Emil Ruusuvuori, and I’m ready to take on the finest in the world.
The victory over Bautista? Roberto is a formidable opponent, and I expected a close fight. I remained confident until the very end, and I was victorious. It’s going to take time, but I’ve already defeated two formidable opponents, so I’m optimistic.”
Baez, a clay-court player from Argentina, will be Thiem’s next opponent today. In the event that Dominic is victorious, he will have the opportunity to play Andrey Rublev, one of Russia’s top ten players.
