Dominic Thiem vs Arthur Rinderknech – Match Predictions

Both players are playing well this week, and this will be a very interesting match in the quarterfinals of the Austrian Open.

Dominic Thiem to win

Dominic Thiem is far from the player he used to be a couple of years ago. He had many ups and downs in the previous two matches this week but here he is going for a spot in the semifinals. Arthur Rinderknech is a serious opponent who will have his chance but the home court advantage and the support of the crowd, will boost Thiem to prevail in this match.

Over 22.5 games

Thiem is picking up his form but he still fails to play consistently well during a match. He is the better player compared to Rinderknech but will not be able to close the match in straight sets. Both players will have their momentum and this will be a long one, going over 22.5 games in total.
