Dominic Thiem Pulls Out Of Events Leading Up To Australian Open

Sydney. Austrian tennis star Dominic Thiem has pulled out of the upcoming ATP Cup and Sydney ATP 250 Cup due to a wrist injury.

The 28-year-old had not participated in a cup since June. When he was playing in the Mallorca Championship, he suffered a right hand injury.

In a lengthy post on social media, Thiem wrote, “After talking to our team, we have decided to return to Austria instead of flying directly to Australia.” He also withdrew from the Mubadala World Tennis Championships in Abu Dhabi.

He said, “I had a cold in Dubai. I got the Kovid test done where my report came negative. I have not been able to practice last week due to ill health. So I withdrew from the ATP and Sydney ATP Cup. Because I’m not fully prepared.”

“For the past six months I haven’t competed in any competition, I was ready to return to competitions very soon, but I don’t want to take the risk, my goal is still to play the Australian Open,” he said.

Thiem will take a final call on his participation in the Cup by the end of December.” Thiem had achieved his career-high ATP ranking of number three in March 2020.
