The French Open 2022 has begun. In the first round of the men's singles, some big players have been shocked. Many big players, including Dominic Thiem and Ons Jabayur, have already crashed out of the rounds. Thiem has been the runner-up of the two-time French Open and has been in the top five of the world rankings. However, due to being away from tennis for a long time due to a wrist injury, his ranking has dropped to 194.
Thiem was defeated 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 by 87th-ranked Hugo Dellien of Bolivia. Thiem became the 2020 US Open champion. Since his return in March this year, he has also suffered defeats in 6 consecutive matches. Along with this, Thiem has also suffered 10 consecutive tour-level matches. His last win was in Rome more than a year ago.
The 28-year-old Austrian former world number three Thiem had come to the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in five years from 2016 to 2020. He suffered final defeats to Rafael Nadal in 2018 and 2019. Thiem said after the match- Knowing that all is not well in practice, going to a Grand Slam is not the biggest feeling. I don't play the way I do in practice.
