The match can then continue. But by that point, the Austrian had lost the first set to the world No. 272 ​​by 2:6 on Exhibition Court 2.

Even after the break, things didn't look good for Thiem for a long time. The 2020 US Open champion was already trailing 3:5 and had to fend off three match points.

But Thiem fought back and won the second round in a tiebreaker 7:4. The former world number three also won the third set. In the end, from Tim's point of view, the score was 2:6, 7:6 (7:4), 6:4. After the match, the 30-year-old also commented on the strange pause caused by the queue.

Tim said: “I love animals very much, especially exotic ones. But they said it was a really venomous snake and it was near the ball kids. So it was a very dangerous situation.”

He continued: “This is something that has never happened to me before, and it is something that I will certainly never forget.” In the second qualifying round, the Austrian will face Italian Giulio Zipieri. The eastern brown snake is considered one of the most venomous snakes in the world. In Australia, this species is responsible for most snakebite deaths.
