Dominic Thiem was pleased and honest after his victory against Franco Agamenone in the first round of qualifying for the French Open on Whit Monday. It was a new experience, but he didn't deserve the wild card, the 30-year-old emphasized. AM Wednesday he continues in Paris.

"I didn't have a different attitude, but it was a new experience as it was the first time I had played here in qualifying," said a visibly relieved Thiem after his win against Agamenone. He thus secured himself another chance to take part in the French Open.

The victory against the Italian was, despite initial difficulties, a commanding one. On Wednesday, his next opponent in qualifying will be Finland's Otto Virtanen. Thiem can again look forward to the support of the crowd.

"Had enough chances"
The fans cheered the Austrian on throughout, creating great emotions. "I tried to enjoy it. This tournament has given me so many great memories. I really have a positive attitude towards my relationship with Roland-Garros," said a happy Thiem after the match.

The fact that the 30-year-old did not receive a wild card despite his impressive career and his announced career end, but instead has to fight his way through qualifying, has caused a stir in the tennis world. However, Thiem himself is trying to calm things down: "I've played enough tournaments and had enough time to climb back up the rankings and I didn't make it. I don't deserve the wildcard."
