Dominic Thiem


D. THIEM/E. Gulbis
4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. When did you sense the match change in the third set?
DOMINIC THIEM: I think I started to return better in the third set. Also, of course his problems physically started in the third set. This was a little bit the changing point.

Q. You warmed up together this morning?

Q. Have you ever done that with an opponent before?
DOMINIC THIEM: Yes. Back in the juniors I did it sometimes, but I think nothing bad about it.

Q. You two are friends. How was it to play?
DOMINIC THIEM: It's tough. I hated the situation. Something really, really special. I mean, it's a really great win for me. It's first time zero to two sets, first time five sets. I would prefer it against everybody else, but not him. I would be happier if it would have happened against someone else.

Q. Ernests said that López would be a tough matchup for you next round.
DOMINIC THIEM: I couldn't go on the court against him in Madrid, so I have some revenge. But he's a great player, serve and volleyer. Going to be a tough match. I have a day off tomorrow so I can get ready. I have doubles, which is good to keep the strokes and everything. Then I'm going to be ready for Sunday.
