Thiem says winning French Open will be “very, very tough”

SHOWS: PARIS, FRANCE (MAY 27, 2019) (FFT - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DOMINIC THIEM, SAYING: "It's a very long way to win a grand slam.

That's what I experienced last year here.

And the tough thing is that we young players, to win a grand slam, probably we have to beat two of these guys who've won 15 or more grand slams. That alone says that it's very, very tough." STORY: Dominic Thiem of Austria advanced to the second round of the French Open on Monday (May 27) after defeating American wild-card entrant Tommy Paul in four sets.

Though he voiced confidence, Thiem said winning a grand slam here was going to be a challenge with a handful of top players also gunning for the prize.

"It's a very long way to win a grand slam.

That's what experienced last year here.

And the tough thing is that we young players, to win a grand slam, probably we have to beat two of these guys who've won 15 or more grand slams. That alone says that it's very, very tough," Thiem, who is seeded fourth, said.
