The Masters in Madrid started on Monday and Andy Murray had a perfect start. The Scotsman won straight through in two sets against Dominic Thiem.

Austrian Dominic Thiem is still waiting for a success after his comeback on the ATP Tour. The 28-year-old lost his first-round match at the Masters in Madrid on Monday evening against Britain’s Andy Murray 3-6, 4-6. The 2020 US Open champion had already lost his opening matches at the tournaments in Belgrade and in Estoril, Portugal.

Thiem had to take a long break since June 2021 due to a complicated hand injury. At the end of March, Thiem played his first official match after the long break at the Challenger tournament in Marbella, but lost to the unknown Argentine Pedro Cachin in two sets. After that, he was slowed down again by a coronavirus infection.
