Dominic Thiem on Monday in Mallorca

Here you can read the complete match in the ticker

High-profile visitors at the match between Dominic Thiem and Gael Monfils in Mallorca: Tommy Haas took the time to attend, as did football world champion Mario Götze, pop icon Dieter Bohlen and billionaire Richard Branson. And this quartet, like all the other fans, saw a typical grass match – with lots of strong serves. And the occasional forehand slice.

Although Monfils had not won any of the six previous matches against Thiem, the Frenchman still started as the favorite according to the world rankings. And he also won the first set 6-3 with a single Braek to make it 4-2.

The second set was decided in a tiebreak – and Dominic Thiem got off to an unfortunate start and quickly fell behind 0:4. And after a playing time of only 78, Gael Mpnfils was able to accept Dominic Thiem’s ​​congratulations.

In the second round, he will face Roberto Carballes Baena, who already won against compatriot Pablo Carreno Busta in three hard-fought sets on Sunday.

Here is the complete individual tableau
