Very big victory for Dominic Thiem this Thursday, who won against Roberto Bautista Agut (20e): 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-4, in 2h41 of play. A week after having acquired his first victory for a year and two months, he joined the quarter-finals of the ATP 250 in Bastad in Sweden by chaining a second consecutive victory for the first time since the Masters 1000 in Madrid, in May 2021 (He beat Emil Ruusuvuori in the previous round).
currently 339e worldwide, the Austrian is finally gaining momentum. There is still a long way to go before he can go up and compete with the best players over time, but this victory will do him a lot of good. He has held his benchmark match since his return after his long wrist injury.
The 2020 US Open winner will face Sebastian Baez or Alejandro Davidovich Fokina for a place in the last four on Swedish clay.
