Dominic Thiem vs Alex De Minaur prediction for Thursday’s 2021 ATP Madrid Open 3rd round clash in Madrid. ATP number four Dominic Thiem takes on ATP number 24 Alex de Minaur in an exciting matchup. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Dominic Thiem in great form

In his first match on clay for over seven months in Madrid, Dominic Thiem showed he is still a force to reckoned with as he beat American Marcos Giron in straight sets in under an hour. Thiem looked sharp in all aspects of his game especially his first serve as he won 81% of the points behind them and 75% of the second serve points. All in all the Austrian lost just eight points on his serve in the match.

With 80% of his first serves in, Thiem didn’t give his opponent the opportunity to get into the game on his second serve. The world number four broke his opponent four times after and hit 20 winners in a very solid game that he’ll hope to continue in the coming match against De Minaur.

Alex De Minaur needs to improve despite two wins

After a three-set win in the first round against Jaume Munar from Spain, Alex De Minaur had an easier run in the second round when his opponent Lloyd Harris of South Africa had to retire due to injury after the Aussie was leading 6-2, 3-0.

De Minaur’s record this year is seven wins and eight losses. He started the season with two losses in the ATP cup. In the Australian Open, the Aussie won his two matches but then lost to Fabio Fognini in the third round. De Minaur hasn’t beaten any player higher than him in the ATP ranking so far this season.

Key Stats

  • Thiem is on a 6-5 win-loss record this year
  • Thiem lost just four games in his first match
  • De Minaur served 57% of his first serve in during his first two matches
  • De Minaur saved 71% of the breaks points against him in his first match

Dominic Thiem vs Alex De Minaur Prediction

Thiem started his Madrid Open match and his first clay court season in style by demolishing his opponent in under one hour and sending a message to all other players on tour that the world number four means business on clay as we have seen in previous seasons.

We don’t see Alex De Minaur possessing any threats to the Austrian in this match and thus we predict Thiem to win 2-0
