Dominic Thiem v Alex De Minaur Head to Head

Thiem has won every single of their three meetings including one at the 2018 Davis Cup.

The other two matches came at the 2017 US Open where Thiem registered a straight-set win in round one and their latest match came at the US Open last year where Thiem didn’t drop a set to make the semifinals en route a title victory.

Thiem Returns with a Bang

Thiem had been out of action for a bit, trying to get back refreshed in the lead-up to the French Open and the break looked to have done him good. In his second round match following an opening bye, he made short work of Marcos Giron to set up a round of 16 meeting with his Aussie opponent.

The Austrian won 6-1, 6-3 in a mere 59 minutes, breaking his opponent four times in the process to carve out the victory. In return, Thiem didn’t face even a single break-point, clinching his victory off the fourth match-point he got.

The ease of victory, especially after having come back from a torrid time through the rest of the season, would have filled Thiem with a lot more confidence than when he fell to back to back defeats in Doha and Dubai.

A fourth round loss at the Australian Open had been followed by a win and two defeats in those two tournaments with Thiem citing his inability to operate at a 100% being the reason. He surely looked like he was back to his best again.

De Minaur Much Improved on Clay

Before the start of this competition, De Minaur’s overall career win-loss record read 93-66 but on clay he was a measely 3-13. Two matches into this Madrid Masters, the Aussie is already making some serious inroads into that record and doing that well.

In the first round, De Minaur was up against a tough clay courter, Jaume Munar and came back from a set down to register a rare win on clay.

He followed that up with a top showing against Lloyd Harris in round two and while his South African opponent eventually retired from the encounter, it had been De Minaur all the way up to that point too.

The Aussie led by a set and 3-0 in the second but just 43 minutes into the contest, Harris opted to retire from the match.

De Minaur will now face a very test and he would like to do a lot better than the last time he played a top-five player – recently he went down to Stefanos Tsitsipas in Barcelona.

Thiem v De Minaur Prediction and Tip

Thiem is 2/7 to win this third round match, which to be honest are solid odds for someone of his capability. Backing him to cruise in straight sets.
