WHITE FLASH 3.

THIEM ANSWERS QUESTION IN GERMAN BEFORE GLANCING AT ORGANISER (OFF SCREEN) AND PROMPTLY LEAVING UPON AN ALLEGED INSTRUCTION TO CUT HIS NEWS CONFERENCE SHORT TO MAKE WAY FOR SERENA WILLIAMS WHO HAD REPORTEDLY DEMANDED TO THE ORGANISERS TO GET HER AT A NEWS CONFERENCE IMMEDIATELY STORY: Dominic Thiem accused Serena Williams of showing "bad personality" after he was asked to interrupt a post-match news conference to make room for the American following her French Open defeat.

The Austrian fourth seed was talking to the media after his third-round win on Saturday (June 1) and Williams, who had just lost in straight sets to compatriot Sofia Kenin, was pushing organisers to give her a room right away.

Organisers made Thiem move out and the Austrian was fuming at the treatment.

Video of the official news conference saw Thiem picking up his phone and leaving the newser after being signalled to by an off screen organiser, he appeared to be forced to move to a smaller room to accommodate Serena Williams' demands.

Footage of the second part of his news conference filmed by accredited media organisations showed Thiem back in a news conference chair but visibly frustrated and arguing with organisers over the forced changes.

"It's a joke," the 25-year-old Thiem told the ATP press officers after being told he had to go to another room.

"I have to leave the room because she's coming.

What the hell, I don't care.

I can also do whatever I want."
