Thiemo direct into US Open main draw

Thiemo received good news after hearing he has gained direct entrance for the US Open main draw. At least three players withdrew from the fourth Grand Slam of the year. The relieved Dutchman looks forward to his second appearance. “I am happy I am able to play in New York!”


Qualifier in opening round Manerbio

Thiemo meets a qualifier in the first round of Manerbio, according to the draw on Saturday. It is the second time the Dutchman plays the Italian challenger event after being eliminated in the quarterfinals in 2008.


'Keep training hard and being patient'

Regaining match rhythm has the biggest priority for Thiemo on this moment. His loss against Spaniard Pablo Carreno-Busta was disappointing, but the world number 117 keeps the spirit alive in search of new success. Patience and hard work are the most important factors.


No repeat of 2009 success in San Sebastian

The return in San Sebastian did not bring the success of 2009 for Thiemo. The former winner of the challenger tourney was looking forward to his return on court, but Pablo Carreno-Busta (ESP) rallied past the Dutchman on Tuesday: 6-3, 6-2.
