Dominic Thiem says he is riding a ‘happy wave’ from US Open as he powers on at Roland Garros

Dominic Thiem says he is still riding a ‘happy wave’ from his US Open win last month after he moved into the third round at Roland Garros.

Thiem was given a test by former top ten star Jack Sock, but he ultimately had far too much power for the American.

And, when quizzed by reporters after the match, Thiem says he certainly feels he has a lot of momentum at the moment.

“I feel pretty good, to be honest, not perfect,” Dominic Thiem told reporters after beating Sock.

“I think the main thing is that I fight 100 per cent like I did today and it paid off.

“Physically it’s okay, but all the emotions, all the mental part was really tough and demanding in New York. But it is what it is.

“I’m still a little bit on the happy wave of New York. Of course, at one point I’m going to get super tired.

“I guess all the tension and focus on Roland-Garros, it’s hiding still the tiredness and everything. I hope I can push it as far as I can.”

“I didn’t have much time at all to prepare for this tournament. It’s completely different conditions than New York.

“I’m trying to find my game, but I’m very happy with it so far.”
