Dominic Thiem

New York, New York, USA

Press Conference

D. THIEM/J. Munar

7-6, 6-3 [Ret.]

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. What do you know about your next opponent and what are your thoughts on facing him, Sumit Nagal?

DOMINIC THIEM: I saw his match last year against Roger first round here. I actually saw the full match. He was playing well. I just remember that he has an amazing forehand, like a really, really good one, and the rest I don't remember that much.

So maybe I'll see some highlights of that match, some highlights of his match today. But it's the same like I said before my first round, that every single player here in this draw is amazing. Really, really good tennis players.

Well, it depends if I'm there 100%, and that's what I'll try to do again.

Q. What effect does the absence of Roger and Rafa have on you and on the tournament?

DOMINIC THIEM: As I said, I mean, the absence of them is never nice. Because obviously, I mean, I can speak only about myself. I love to watch them, as well. Even if I'm player myself, I love to watch them, watch them compete.

But I think it's not too big of a deal, because it's not the first time in a major that these two are not playing. And in a few years it's going to be every major without them, so I think it's not that big of a deal.

There are still many, many super players around. So it doesn't really matter, as it's not the first match where they are not competing.
