Dominic Thiem has been inconsistent lately owing to many factors such as injury woes or a simple dip in form. However, he has been working hard to perform the best, especially with the US Open approaching rapidly. The former US Open champion has been currently showcasing impressive performances in the ongoing Swiss Open.
His first-round defeat in the French Open would indeed have been a wake-up call for him and ever since then, he has been training hard. In the ongoing Swiss Open, he recently defeated Hugo Gaston in the Round of 32 in a thrilling three-set tie-breaker match.
He also went on to defeat Federico Delbonass in the Round of 16 fixtures in order to secure his place in the Quarterfinals of the Swiss Open. After the win, in the post-match press conference, he stated,
“Every win is so important right now”.
“I really win those ranking points. Every match win counts and is very important”.
“The key moment was that set point saved with a backhand passing”.
Dominic would surely be filled with confidence after his wins in the Swiss Open.
Dominic Thiem Enters his second consecutive quarter-finals
Ever since Dominic Thiem won the 2020 US Open, he has been rather inconsistent and injury-prone. For instance, his injury during the 2021 Mallorca ATP Tour made him miss out on other tournaments for a lot of months.
After his recovery, his form significantly declined. In his match against Federico, he saved two set points in the first set itself and then beat Delbonis by a 7-6(3), 6-3 in order to progress to the quarterfinals.

He will most likely be facing Varillas or Bautista Agut in the Last 8. All of these matches would give Dominic a much-needed boost ahead of the US Open since his win rate in 2022 has been relatively low.
He also pointed out the fact that with the wins he is getting crucial ranking points which are very important for him. Thiem would surely be looking forward to clinching the Swiss Open title.
