After his comeback on the ATP tour, the Austrian Dominic Thiem is still waiting for success.
The 28-year-old lost his first round game at the Masters in Madrid against the British Andy Murray on Monday evening 3: 6 and 4: 6.
Previously, the US Open Champion from 2020 had already lost its kick-off encounters at the tournaments in Belgrade and in the Estoril in Portuguese.
Thiem had had to take a long time since June 2021 due to a complicated hand injury.
At the end of March, Thiem had completed his first official match after the long break at the Challenger tournament in Marbella, but lost to the unknown Argentine Pedro Cachin in two sets.
After that, he had been slowed down again by a coronavirus infection.
