UTS1 Preview: Why Thiem wants a piece of revenge against Goffin
Dominic Thiem found his UTS groove last weekend when he handed The Greek God Stefanos Tsitsipas his first loss in a thrilling encounter. Today the Austrian will try to blast through David Goffin’s wall to prove that his dominance in the South of France runs deep.
But buyer beware: Thiem’s dream has turned to a nightmare against Goffin before. It has been a hard road on hard courts for Domi, who has lost all four of his completed matches against Goffin on the surface.
The Wall will also take confidence from recent form. After a pair of week two wins he’s now locked into fourth place in the UTS rankings and looking to go higher today. Thiem will want to change the course of the rivalry and force The Wall to crumble. But Goffin hopes to tower above the Austrian today.
