Thiem had also never played against these two players, but had to deny both the US boy Paul and against the Kazakh republic four sets each to fix the progress. In the second round against Bublik Thiem had to be lucky, that the full distance was not necessary. In the fourth set Thiem was already behind with 2: 5, could with a strong final spurt this sentence but still with 7: 5 to win.

With this final spurt, Thiem saved a few more powers on the big center court. The game was not spectacular over the entire distance and did not tear the fans off the seats. Bublik tried again and again to break the rhythm of Thiem with success. The Austrian was rarely in the game, spectacular points were there for the fans not to cheer. Thiem described the mood as “lethargic”.

Cuevas has not wasted a lot of energy so far, but he has impressively demonstrated his strong form. He is certainly weaker than Thiem. Especially in terms of constancy, Cuevas takes time out again.
