ATP wrap: Dominic Thiem impresses in Hamburg but Germans crashing out
Dominic Thiem made a winning start in Hamburg, but Philipp Kohlscheiber was a big-name casualty.
Austrian Thiem, the French Open runner-up – one of his four ATP Tour finals this year – enjoyed a positive return to his favoured surface of clay, easily besting Corentin Moutet 6-4 6-2.
He’ll now face Australian John Millman in the next round, who beat Jan-Lennard Struff 7-5 6-3.
