Ugo Humbert smashes Dominic Thiem in Rennes Challenger final

Dominic Thiem failed to win the Rennes Challenger as he was beaten by native player Ugo Humbert in the final 6-4 6-0.

It was not a good match from Thiem who looked sluggish and slow in the entire match and certainly could not find a solution to Humbert when returning. The French player is a very good indoor player as some of his biggest results ever came in these conditions.

He has a powerful serve that gives him a huge edge in these conditions and today it was working really well. He dropped only a handful of points behind his first serve and was aggressive enough to give Thiem a lot of trouble, especially in the second set.

Thiem's serve completely fell apart in the second set and Humbert was just cruising in his return games slamming winners easily. One break turned into two and two turned into three with the final score being a bagel.

A disappointing finish for Thiem but some positives ahead of the continuation of the indoor hard court season.
