MEET DOMINIC THIEM
A prodigious talent as a teenager, Thiem reached No.2 in the junior rankings and has built on those foundations ever since turning pro, reaching the French Open Final in 2018 & 2019, the ATP Tour Finals Final in 2019 and most recently the Australian Open final in 2020. Thiem has won 16 ATP titles, 10 of those coming on clay, the surface in which he poses a real threat to Rafa Nadal, having beaten him several times on the surface. Thiem has a 75% winning record on clay. In 2016 Thiem beat Andy Murray to win Tie Break Tens Vienna with home fans cheering him on and this will be his fourth time playing TB10. Domi won his first Masters 1000 tournament at Indian Wells in 2019 in what proved to be a breakout season for him. He lists his forehand as his favourite stroke, but it is his single-handed backhand that receives the headlines, for its beauty as well as its devastating results. A fanatical Chelsea football fan, Thiem arrived at The Queen’s Club a couple of years ago wearing the blue jersey of his favourite team.
‘Tie Break Tens is a fantastic format that I love playing. It’s something different and a lot of fun. The final I had with Andy Murray a few years ago was really tense, serious tennis and I’m really looking forward to playing again’
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
Thiem has bulldozed his way through the rankings, unconcerned by the names he has faced along the way. With wins against all the top-ranked players over the years, he goes into every match believing he can win.
ONE OF THE BEST ONE-HANDED BACKHANDS IN TENNIS
The wind-up, the crisp, clean ping off the strings, the extravagant, flourishing follow-through. The Dominic Thiem backhand is a joyto watch. ‘His backhand down the line is phenomenal’ says former World Number One, Ivan Lendl.
The Austrian is a pocket rocket and has a never-ending work ethic. The high projection on his shots presents a plethora of problems for opponents, as does his wicked kick on second serves.
