No problems for Dominic Thiem and David Goffin as both advance to the US Open 2nd round in straight sets.


Dominic had another mature performance to beat world no.84 Lukas Lacko 6-3 6-3 6-2. The young Austrian broke Lucas 5 times without conceding a single service game.

Dominic will play Gulbis in the next round. Head to head is 1-0 for Ernests that will have to face a tough battle to get to the 3rd round.


David is having an incredible summer. The Belgian has won 4 consecutive tournaments and his tennis is getting more and more solid. Goffin didn’t have any problem to dismiss fellow compatriot Niels Desein 6-1 6-3 6-3.

Goffin will play Joao Sousa in the second round. Head to head is 1-0 for the Portuguese, but Goffin should be the favorite to reach the 3rd round.
