Thiem out of Wimbledon
Two-time French Open champion Dominic Thiem was knocked out of Wimbledon in the first round on Tuesday losing to veteran American Sam Querrey 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/1), 6-3, 6-0.
The 25-year-old Austrian fifth seed does not find grass to his liking — his best showing reaching the last 16 in 2017 — and wilted under the expert serve and volley game of Querrey.
Querrey, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon in 2017, will next play Andrey Rublev of Russia or Cristian Garin of Chile.
Thiem joins fellow top-10 seeds Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev in being toppled in the first round.
