It’s Dominic Thiem, winner of the 140th US Open. The Austrian will now rely on his brother Moritz. Thiem tries to recover his best form after the wrist injury that has affected him in recent seasons. The 2023 of the tennis player trained by Nicolás Massú began with defeat.
Thiem lost in his debut at both the ATP 250 tournament in Adelaide 1 and the Australian Open, and has failed to win a single Davis Cup match in the challenge for access to the final phases of the most important team event against Croatia.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t help Austria in the Davis Cup challenge against Croatia. Congratulations and well done,” Thiem wrote on his Instagram account. “I know it wasn’t easy for all of you to support me and I fully understand that some of my performances didn’t measure up.”
Thiem is currently 99th in the world
Dominic Thiem, currently 99th in the world, seems to be back in good physical shape after his very bad wrist injury.
The Austrian is engaged on clay in Buenos Aires this week. For the occasion, the winner of the US Open 2020 was interviewed by our Argentinian colleagues from Olé. He looks back on his complicated comeback and all his confrontations against the BIG 3.
Remember that Dominic Thiem is one of the only players to have beaten them on several occasions, whether Novak Djokovic (5 times), Roger Federer (5 times) and Rafael Nadal (6 times). According to him, everyone is unique and that is what makes their reputation, there is no GOAT.
“I have a great relationship with all of them, I get along very well with all three and I admire them all equally. All the time people talk about who is better than the other and it’s not really good. I don’t like to say that.
I think it’s a disrespect to all of them, they’ve all done amazing things, which probably no one else will ever do in their lifetime. There is not just one GOAT, all three deserve it because they are unique,” said the Austrian.
