The Austrian, who turns 30 later this year, speaks to Tennis Majors about his season so far, his new team and what’s on his wish list for Christmas this year.
In an exclusive interview, Thiem spoke about his season so far, his split with coach and close friend Nicolas Massu and the new team that he has been working with, his passion for the environment and his wish list for Christmas this year among other things.
“I feel good, much better than at the beginning of the season. Over the last month, I have had great intensity during practice, spending five hours or more per day on the court. The matches in the last few tournaments have also boosted my confidence. Now, it’s important to maintain this level of hard work and continue improving every day. I want to return to the top, and although it won’t be easy, I will give it my all.”
“The match against Tsitsipas was very good, and I realised that I can once again compete with the best players in the world. However, I also saw my mistakes, such as too many return errors, and not being able to maintain my level in the second set. Of course, I was disappointed that I didn’t win the match, but overall, it was a good performance. I am working hard to correct these mistakes, and I see improvement every day.”
While Carlos Alcaraz’s little brother, Jaime, only 11 years old, is already starting to make a name for himself thanks to the quality of his game, which some people like Andrey Rublev have already noticed, we learned from Carlos himself that he is a real fan of Dominic Thiem.
Carlos Alcaraz: “My little brother, Jaime, loves you so much. You are his idol”.
