Dominic Thiem suffers from ATP Cup and retreat from Sydney – Tennis Sports

Dominic Thiem has withdrawn from the ATP Cup and ATP250 events in Sydney. Thiem wasn’t injured, but he caught a cold last week and hit his preparations for the 2022 season. “After talking to my team, I decided to return to Austria instead of flying directly to Australia.

Unfortunately, I caught a cold (and was negative for COVID-19) while in Dubai and couldn’t practice last week. Therefore, you won’t be in the condition you need to play the ATP Cup and the Sydney ATP250. “

“After not competing for the last six months, I can’t immediately go back and risk further injuries. Overall, the time spent in Dubai was great as it increased the intensity and level of practice. The wrist is almost 100%. “

Thiem still wants to play at the Australian Open

If Thiem decides to play at the Australian Open, it will be his first tournament since he suffered a wrist injury at the end of the season in Mallorca. “My goal is still to play at the Australian Open, but by the end of December I will make the final decision on my participation,” Thiem added.

“We wish you all the best of luck to our fans, partners and the media for the holiday season.” Thiem was planning to return to the competition at the Mubadara World Tennis Championships, but at the last moment. I withdrew from the event.

“Of course I wanted to play, but it was clear that it was close,” Thiem said. “The whole process is going according to plan. I’m completely painless and lagging behind in punch training.

“Experience has shown that everyone in Abu Dhabi is at full capacity, but I’m not ready for such a match yet. Only when my forehand is 100%. Face it. At the moment it’s only 80 percent. ”
