When Dominic Thiem returned in April from a nine-month right wrist injury lay-off, things didn’t come back easily, as he went 0-6 in his first six ATP events back.

But that’s all changed dramatically over the last two weeks—the 2020 US Open champion reached the first ATP quarterfinal of his comeback in Bastad, Sweden last week, and now he’s through to his second ATP quarterfinal in as many weeks in Gstaad, Switzerland, after a 7-6 (6), 6-3 victory over Federico Delbonis today.

It’s Thiem's first time reaching back-to-back ATP quarterfinals since 2020, when he reached the quarters or better at his last four events of the year (winning the US Open, reaching the quarters of Roland Garros and Vienna, then the final of the ATP Finals).

Thiem’s win over Delbonis was also his 150th career win on clay. He’s the 10th active men’s player to reach that milestone, and the first man born in 1990 or later to do it:

474: Rafael Nadal (474-45)
257: Novak Djokovic (257-63)
236: Fernando Verdasco (236-156)
228: Fabio Fognini (228-165)
226: Roger Federer (226-71)
186: Stan Wawrnka (186-97)
183: Albert Ramos-Vinolas (183-149)
170: Pablo Cuevas (170-119)
161: Richard Gasquet (161-100)
150: Dominic Thiem (150-58)

Thiem jumped from No. 339 to No. 274 on the ATP rankings after his performance in Bastad last week, and he’s projected to rise to around No. 231 with his run so far in Gstaad (one more win would almost definitely put him back into the Top 200).
