Australian Open: Thiem journey through first circle

Dominic Thiem opened his Australian Open marketing campaign with a 6-Three 7-5 6-2 win over France’s Adrian Mannarino on Tuesday.

The fifth seed wobbled halfway through the second set when he was damaged and allowed Mannarino to stage at 4-4.

Nonetheless, the 26-year-old Austrian recovered rapidly, proving robust within the longer rallies, together with a 28-shot stunner, to interrupt Mannarino’s serve in direction of the tip of the set.

Thiem sealed the victory together with his seventh ace after two hours and 21 minutes to arrange a gathering with both Spain’s Albert Ramos-Vinolas or Australian wildcard Alex Bolt.
