Thiem continues to wait for his first victory since his comeback. The 28-year-old Austrian had only returned to the tennis tour in March after a nine-month break due to a wrist injury. But Thiem is currently miles away from his old form, in which he had won the US Open in the final against Alexander Zverev in the final against Alexander Zverev.
With the seventh defeat in a row, the Austrian said goodbye to the Grand Slam tournament in France prematurely.
It is going quite well in training, but there is still a lot missing in the match.
“It hurts,” said Thiem after the bitter appearance on the court Simonne Mathieu. “To be honest, I was far from winning in the games before,” said the Austrian deeply disappointed. “It is going quite well in training, but a lot is still missing in the match. I have to be patient.”
Next, the former number three in the world is planning a start at the somewhat smaller Challenger tournament in Parugia in two weeks.
