The Line: -- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
Austrian tennis superstar, Dominic Thiem is set to play at the 2019 US Open in New York. Thiem will begin his tournament against Thomas Fabbiano from Italy.
Thomas Fabbiano last played at the Winston-Salem Open where he was defeated in the opening round by Andrey Rublev. In general, Fabbiano has had a tough few months as he has only won 2 matches since Wimbledon. Thomas Fabbiano has not played much tennis in the North American leg as he extended his European season by playing at the Austrian Open. Fabbiano didn’t play the Cincinnati Masters nor the Rogers Cup. With a lack of time in these conditions, Thomas Fabbiano may struggle against an opponent like Dominic Thiem.
Looking at the Dominic Thiem, the Austrian skipped the Cincinnati Masters following a strong Roger’s Cup. Thiem made the quarterfinals of the Roger’s Cup where he defeated the likes of Denis Shapovalov and Marin Cilic. It has been a strong few months for Dominic Thiem as he won the Austrian Open. Since Wimbledon, Dominic Thiem has a record of 8-2.
Dominic Thiem has impressed at the US Open as he has won 75% of his matches at this tournament. Thiem made the quarterfinal of the US Open last season when he was eliminated by Rafael Nadal. The quarterfinal match between Thiem and Nadal was a modern classic where the Austrian almost eliminated the Spanish superstar.
This will be the first time that Dominic Thiem and Thomas Fabbiano will be playing each other at an ATP tournament.
Thomas Fabbiano has not been playing well and he looks underprepared for this tournament. Fabbiano has not played well since Wimbledon and it is hard to see him compete against Thiem. Dominic Thiem has been very impressive in 2019 and the Austrian will enter the US Open as a genuine contender. I see Thiem winning this match in straight sets.
