Dominic Thiem said he has to “hurt opponents more with shots” after winning “a great match” against Marton Fucsovics at the Italian Open.

The world No. 4 battled through to the third round of the Masters 1000 event today with a 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-0 win against the Hungarian.

The Austrian came from a break down in the second set and was two points from defeat in the tiebreak, before storming through the deciding set.

“It was such a close match, especially in the second set. I knew he’d be a super-tough opponent, particularly coming from different conditions in Madrid,” said Thiem in a post-match interview.

“I was fighting all the match and stayed in there. At the end, I got the reward for fighting. I had difficulties with my timing and my serve. I have to hurt my opponent more with my shots. I still won a great match and I will try to improve for tomorrow.”

The 27-year-old will play Lorenzo Sonego in the last 16 on Thursday.
