Dominic Thiem, the Austrian veteran moves to the round of 16 of the Italian Open. After a tiresome match in the previous round, the Austrian shared what he was thinking during the match.
The Austrian faced the World No.44, Marton Fucsovics in the R32 of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, where Thiem won with a score of 3-6, 7 (7)-6 (5), 6-0.
Thiem had a tough fight against the Hungarian, as the Austrian lost the first set. Further, Fucsovics pushed the World No.4 to a tie-breaker in the second set and even gave a hard time during the tie-breaker. However, Thiem turned the table and won a losing bet in the tie-breaker and even won the third set without losing a single point in the last
In the post-match interview, Dominic Thiem conveyed, “I was down all the time. I lost the first set and then [in the] second [set] I was a breakdown. [In the] tie-break, I was 4/5 down. So until that point, 5/5, I was down all the match.”
“So I told myself, ‘Well, this is the chance now to go up for the first time in the whole match. It’s also if I win the point, it’s a chance to win the set’. That’s what went through my mind. Luckily I took it,” the Austrian further stated.
"In that exact moment, I was just focused on winning the next point."@ThiemDomi was two points away from losing before pulling out a 3-6 7-6(5) 6-0 victory over Fucsovics. 🔥 pic.twitter.com/9D7gve882Z

The fourth seed Thiem will now face the Italian Lorenzo Sonego in the next round. The Austrian has previously faced Sonego in the 250 circuit of Kitzbühel, where Thiem won against the Italian.
Many pundits and fans believe the Austrian will make his way past the Italian. However, Dominic Thiem shouldn’t be overconfident and need to pull up his socks, as the top three players- Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Daniil Medvedev are also present in the Italian tournament.
