Tennis – Thiem aiming for consistency

Dominic Thiem is eager to build on the performances which helped him secure a first-ever Masters 1000 title at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. The former French Open finalist had previously been beaten in the final of the Madrid Masters in both 2017 and 2018, but he made it third time lucky as he fought back to down Roger Federer 3-6 6-3 7-5. Afterwards, Thiem told the official ATP Tour website: "It feels unreal what happened in these ten days. I turned a pretty bad start to the season into a very good one. "Of course, the title is amazing, it will stay there forever. But it would be nice if I could hold this shape and all of these positive emotions in the next tournament and every tournament I play." Thiem is now priced at 11/1 with bet365 to win the French Open later this year, having reached at least the semi-finals in each of the last three years.
