The 15-time Grand Slam champion struggled early in the first set but found his best tennis at the right time, winning 15 of the last 19 games of the match.

Thiem produced an impressive display on Court Suzanne-Lenglen, firing 29 winners to just 12 unforced errors in one of his best performances this year.
