Opening great things at the US Open, but protecting the ocean is more important – Tennis Sports

Austrian Dominic Thiem It was great to win the US Open, but he says it’s more important to save the planet. “Winning the US Open is clearly surprising, but it’s pretty personal and can’t even be compared because it protects the ocean, protects the environment, and protects the entire future of the planet.” Said Thiem at the Cosmos Sports Summit.

“If I can make a little difference, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime success, because it is much more important than personal success.”

Thiem wants to save the sea

“I’m from Austria and have no sea or coastline, so visiting the sea may be special. When I started on this topic for the last two years, I started learning that we all depend on it. It doesn’t matter if we are far from the ocean, as there are many on the ocean and it connects the entire globe.

“That’s why it’s just as important to Austrians and to coasters.” I learned a lot about marine life while working with the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) in a protected area of ​​the Balearic Islands. .. About plastic pollution, all threats and what we can do about it. “

Thiem is one of the most popular tennis players in the world and he wants to use his position to raise awareness of the importance of saving our plants. “Sports are a huge stage and the world’s largest athletes have big fans.

Now is the time to take care of the planet and turn things around. “I don’t have time to do that, so I think it’s very important for athletes to move in this direction right now. I think it can make a big difference.”

Thiem, who suffered a wrist injury at the end of the season in June, will resume his career at the Mubadara World Tennis Championships next month. Thiem also revealed that he has been vaccinated and plans to play at the Australian Open.
