Thiem vs Monfils
On Suzanna-Lenglen, Sunday’s battle between Kai Nishikori and Benoit Paire will resume with the Japanese star leading two sets to one after play was suspended.
“It was my best match so far at the French Open. Not at all perfect yet, but the best so far,” Thiem said. “He played well, especially in the beginning and then at the end of the match.”
“I had a very bad start, but then I played very well. The third and fourth [sets were] solid. I think it was quite a good clay-court match.”
Dominic Thiem will seek to move one step closer to another French Open final on Monday, taking on home favourite Gael Monfils for a spot in the quarter finals. Thiem should be favoured to make the semi finals here with either Karen Khachanov or Juan Martin Del Potro up for the winner.

Thiem would have been placed as the third favourite for the tournament before it started and while he probably still is, his three matches so far haven’t looked like that of a contender. He needed four sets to win all of them but could have been taken five on all occasions, including against Pablo Cuevas who he eventually beat 6-3 4-6 6-2 7-5. “I had a very bad start, but then I played very well,” Thiem said afterwards. “The third and fourth [sets were] solid. I think it was quite a good clay-court match.”
Dominic Thiem and Gael Monfils will square off in the 4th round of the French Open for the 5th time of their career. They are scheduled to play on Monday at 4 pm (est) on Court Philippe CHATRIER.
