Dominic Thiem says Serena Williams has 'bad personality' after press conference interruption

Serena Williams' third-round loss at the French Open also had a big impact on Dominic Thiem.

Dominic Thiem pulls off an incredible tweener in his match with Gael Monfils, with the Frenchman applauding his opponent in disbelief. "I don't know if she saw me, or saw someone was in the room".

"I had an apology [from tournament director Guy Forget]".

"I don't know exactly what happened".

When Thiem was made aware of the situation he outlined his disappointment by saying: "I don't really get it, seriously. I'm easy-going. Of course it was odd, but I've forgotten it now".

Google will reveal Stadia prices and games on June 6th
It didn't take long for Google to move from the free Project Stream demo late a year ago to the Stadia reveal in March. Google says the first " Stadia Connect " is coming on June 6th, and you'll be able to watch on YouTube.

"It's a joke", fumed the 25-year-old Thiem to media officers after being told he should finish his interviews in a smaller room.

"She lost and everything", the Austrian said. "You see things differently, and I think for me I learned a lot from those moments when I'm just sitting and watching him".

"For Serena to say I'm going in there no matter what, whether it's the organisers, or what, either way it was really wrong".

Williams was so eager to get her media obligations over and done with Saturday evening that she met with reporters a little more than 10 minutes after her match ended - much sooner than usual.

Thiem will now face either Russian Karen Khachanov or Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro for a place in the last four, where he could meet world number one Novak Djokovic. "What's the point of that, that I have to leave the room because she's coming?"
