Dominic Thiem issues Australian Open warning, saying: ‘I found a super good timing’


Dominic Thiem believes he is slowly improving as he defeated Dominik Koepfer to move into the third round of the Australian Open.

Thiem has struggled so far this season, putting on a poor show at the ATP Cup and then putting in a patchy performance in his first round Australian Open match.

However, he looked much more like his usual self, winning 12 of the final 14 games of the match to cruise to a 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 win.

“I feel great, to be honest. I love this court, Margaret Court Arena,” Dominic Thiem said in his on-court interview.

“Today was a great match, I think my best so far in Australia. A lot of good stuff to build on.”

“Especially after the first set, kind of everything started to work. I found a super good timing.

“I think it got some degrees cooler, which was little bit more comfortable to play.

“But in general I’m happy because I beat a very good opponent in three sets.”
