"It's nice that I'm improving every week" - Thiem stays positive after another loss

Dominic Thiem lost to Benjamin Bonzi in Estoril in straight sets despite having 3 set points in the second set to extend the match.

Thiem is yet to win a match since returning from injury earlier this month. The Austrian player played three matches overall losing all three against players he regularly would have beaten. It's obviously a process to get back to peak tennis form but the frustration was still present. Asked about the match, Theim said:

"I'm very pissed. I wanted to play a 3rd set badly"

Despite that he struck a more positive tone after that highlighting his clear improvement in each match which is true:

“It’s tough to lose in early rounds and I feel this won’t be the last time, but at the same time is nice to feel that I’m improving every week. It’s a feeling that you don’t have when you are top5”.

Thiem will play in Madrid next week where he had a solid run last year reaching the quarterfinal and losing to Zverev.
