      Thiem has to be elated to be back on clay after going 0-2 on grass, a surface he said on Facebook that he just does not understand.

      Knocks off the 8 seed today (Granollers) to get to the 3rd round, after beating another of this years"New Balls Please" candidates, Jiri Vesaly in the first round.

      Even better news, things look very good for a Top 50 debut come next week.

      Greatness just on clay will not happen. Dominic will have to learn to be exceptional at least on hard if not grass.

      He had a solid Indian Wells, Suliso - played through qualies to get to the main draw, beat Simon (who was seeded 23), and got to the 3rd round. He also got to the R16 at Rotterdam on indoor hard courts back in February - that was were he almost took out Murray (3-6 in the 3rd set).

      He can definitely play hard courts, and will only get better with some more experience under his belt. He'll skip the early US hard court events (Atlanta, DC), since Kitzbuhel is at the end of July - but I hope he either WCs or plays through qualies for the main draw at Toronto and Cincy.

      BTW, the responses he's getting are great:

      "If you didn't want to offend anyone you wouldn't have said it. What a disgrace."
      "imagine if you wanted to offend people what drivel would have come out of your mouth"
      "your name rhymes with shame"
      "you should be disqualified"
      and so on.
