After almost two hours, Dominic Thiem also won the second match after his comeback and beat Alex De Minaur 7: 6, 6: 4 and is now in the quarter-finals of the Mutua Madrid Open.

The Lower Austrian seeded at 3 had a difficult start and started with a loss of service. But the 27-year-old knew how to improve and managed the re-break in the middle of the first set.

The Australian, however, turned out to be a tough guy with a knack for the volleys. The 22-year-old kept things open for a long time, had his chances and a set ball in the close tie-break.

But then Thiem used the second opportunity for his part. In the second half, the Lichtenwörther managed an early break, which De Minaur took back, but immediately gave away in the seventh game. That should ultimately have been the decision. The US Open winner couldn't take it away.

Dominic Thiem: "These two victories are a positive surprise for me"

Dominic Thiem's ​​voices for the round of 16 match on Sky:

... about the match: "It felt very good. It was an incredibly important and good match for me against a top opponent who also likes to play long rallies. There were a lot of long, intense rallies and that's exactly what I need on clay. It was a really close first set with a break deficit, the rebreak and then of course I sensationally fended off a set ball in the tie-break. There were many good things today and the win, or these two wins, are a positive surprise for me . Now I'm happy to have another chance against another top player tomorrow. "

... where he currently sees the greatest potential in himself: "Well, I think the greatest potential is that the whole match rhythm is still a little missing. I want to really keep the intensity at 100% again. And over the whole match, I had a little drop today after this tight first set . I then sometimes played with too much effort. Everything just has to be a little looser because then the strokes are just more aggressive. The whole match rhythm, all the anticipation is still a little missing, but that's actually a really high whine Level. The two matches were really good and the training days were really good too. So I'm very, very happy that I'm definitely back on the right track.
