Paul opened up the game at a better pace and won the first set 6:2. However, Thiem managed to turn things around and win both of the next two sets after close tiebreaks.
In the next round, Thiem will face the winner of the duel between Russian player Daniil Medvedev and Georgian Nikoloz Nasilashvili. The end of the season is near, so there will be plenty of good tennis in the upcoming period.
