“This Has Been One Of The Best ”- Dominic Thiem
The world number three was not satisfied with his performance in the last four games as he says they weren’t good enough as the rest of the games. His constant dedication and hard work had led him to come so far.
He was fortunate enough to increase his level and perform satisfactorily well. Thiem said, “I think he played well from start to finish actually. I increased my level. Maybe the first four games weren’t as good as the rest of the game for me.”
Moreover, Thiem also added, “in any case, he plays very well especially on clay, surely one of the best this season. If we give him another year, I believe he will be extremely dangerous, especially here at Roland Garros. These slow, wet conditions suited me better than him. Overall, I was very satisfied with my performance, one of the best this year.”
