It still hasn’t happened. There is certainly better Dominic Thiem in his game since he returned to competition last March, after a nine-month absence. But the Austrian, who has fallen to 194th in the ATP, suffered a sixth straight defeat on Monday to Marco Cecchinato in the first round of the Geneva Open (6-3, 6-4). Only consolation, the previous double final of Roland Garros hit the scene by executing two winners in just one match, leaving his Italian opponent speechless.
After Marbella, the Serbia Open, Estoril, Madrid and Rome, Dominic Thiem can now suspend Geneva at the tournament table where he failed to make it through the first round. However, the Austrian still made seven break points without being able to convert a single point. For his part, Marco Cecchinato relied on a very good percentage of points he won behind his first serve (82%), while Tim only exceeded 45% from his first serve.
