1st round: Gentle

Opponent: Jaume Munar (Spain)
Score : 7-6(6), 6-3
Duration: 1h55

Eliminated without glory in the 1st round at the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati the previous week, also released in the 1st round a year ago at the US Open, we begin to wonder if Dominic Thiem does not have a problem with Flushing Meadows. But he offers himself a smooth entry into this fortnight against Jaume Munar, 105th in the world. The Spaniard is forced to retire after the first two sets. Munar, who fell badly on one knee in the second set, requested the doctor’s intervention. Before giving up playing the 3rd round.

2nd round: Happy birthday

Opponent: Sumit Nagal (India)
Score : 6-3, 6-3, 6-2
Duration: 1h59

On his 27th birthday, the Austrian made himself a small gift by shipping Sumit Nagal, 124th in the world. The Indian, revealed to the general public here a year ago by taking a set from Roger Federer on Arthur-Ashe court, doesn’t have the weapons to upset Thiem. Without making a perfect copy (he gives up his serve twice and commits around thirty unforced errors), the world number 3 is still having a fairly quiet time.

3rd round: A lost set but no danger

Opponent: Marin Cilic (Croatia)
Score : 6-2, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3
Duration: 2h27

The only set lost of the whole fortnight by Dominic Thiem. This is to say the small feat accomplished by Marin Cilic. But the winner of the 2014 edition has never really endangered his opponent. Very impressive for two sets, Thiem knows a little relaxation in the third round. A breach in which the Croatian rushes. But it is overall a show of force that signs the double finalist of Roland-Garros.

Round of 16: Show of strength

Opponent: Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada)
Score : 7-6(4), 6-1, 6-1
Duration: 2h07

Some promised quite great difficulties for Dominic Thiem against Felix Auger-Aliassime. The great Canadian hope will hang on a set, before being swallowed up by the devilish precision of his opponent. This round of 16 really lasts only one round, before the Austrian begins his demonstration. “The 2nd and 3rd sets are by far the best I have played in the tournament“, jubile Thiem.

Quarter-final: A butcher’s shop

Opponent: Alex De Minaur (Australia)
Score : 6-1, 6-2, 6-4
Duration: 2h04

There is no photo on the Arthur-Ashe. Always so aggressive, powerful and precise from the baseline, Thiem constantly overwhelms Alex De Minaur, yet a formidable defender. Author of 43 winning shots (against 17) and 11 aces in total, the Austrian was a steamroller during the first two innings. The Australian clings more in the third set but cannot prevent the inevitable correction. Has Thiem ever been so impressive?

Semi-final: A big fight but three sets

Opponent: Daniil Medvedev (Russia)
Score : 6-2, 7-6, 7-6
Duration: 2h56

Even Daniil Medvedev could not resist the Austrian strike force. The Russian, yet also impressive during this fortnight – he had not lost a single set so far – was ultimately no match. It was by far the game where Thiem had to work the most, however, even though the case was folded in three sets. But the intensity of the fight was real and the last two rounds went down to nothing. But hard not to see a form of relentless logic in the success of “Dominator.”
