Dominic Thiem has mastered the qualifying round for the French Open against the Italian Franco Agamenone. After losing the first set 3:6, the Austrian finally prevailed with aplomb. Thiem won the second set 6:3 and took the third 6:2. The 30-year-old therefore remains in the tournament.

Dominic Thiem has won his first match after announcing his retirement. In qualifying for the French Open in Paris, the former finalist came back from a set down to win 3:6, 6:3, 6:2 against the Italo-Argentinian Franco Agamenone in the first qualifying round on Monday. Thiem, who was seeded number 11 in the qualifying round, will now face Finland's Otto Virtanen (ATP number 156) in the second round.

False start ironed out again
Thiem had announced a week and a half ago that he wanted to end his professional career in the fall. The Lower Austrian, who lost in the final to Rafael Nadal in Paris in 2018 and 2019, did not receive a wild card for the major tournament in Roland Garros. The 30-year-old got off to a false start on Court Suzanne-Lenglen against the number 228 in the ATP ranking. Agamenone, who is a year older, secured the first set after a break to 4:2.

However, Thiem got into his stride, took the second set (break to 4:2) and was also the better player in the decider. The Lower Austrian, who is ranked 131st in the new world rankings, secured breaks at 1:0, 3:0 and 4:1 and only had to give up his service game once. After 2:19 hours, Thiem took his game 6:2 with some trepidation thanks to two aces.

Five Austrians
A total of five Austrians will try their hand at the men's qualifying in Paris. In addition to Thiem, Filip Misolic also made it through to the second round on Monday. The Styrian beat Japan's Sho Shimabukuro 6:3, 6:2. In the women's tournament, Sinja Kraus successfully completed her first task. The Viennese won against Elizabeth Mandlik from the USA 7:6(6),3:6,6:4. On Tuesday (from 10.00 a.m.) Lukas Neumayer from Salzburg (1st match) and Dennis Novak (3rd) and Jurij Rodionov (4th) from Lower Austria have to play their opening matches.
