Dominic Thiem wins fabulous point in Roland Garros


Highest seed from the men’s draw to play on opening day at the French Open, Dominic Thiem already is in contention for the best point won in the event.

In the middle of his 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 win over Aussie Bernard Tomic, the number six seed played a rallye that included a tweener, and several breathtaking volleys to win a spectacular point. The Austrian thus earned a deserved and heartfelt ovation from the crowd… and just as deserved applause from his rival.
