It is said that Tim is about to resign


Dominic Thiem's ​​tennis career may be coming to an end. As reported by Salzburger Nachrichten, the Lower Austrian is said to have informed his sponsors of his planned resignation at the end of the season. There has been no reaction from Thiem yet.

The 30-year-old player, who is from the city of Lichtenfurth (Wiener Neustadt region), announced that the 2024 season is the “year of decisiveness.” After Thiem has battled in vain to return to the top of the world since suffering a wrist injury in June 2021, it should at least be a return to the top 50 in the world. Only then will furthering your career make sense,” Thiem said at the start of the year. He is currently ranked 117th and has won only a meager two matches on the ATP Tour this year.

Thiem's ​​once beloved clay court season has been a disappointment so far. After failing to qualify in Madrid, Thiem once again announced his suspension from the tournament and decided not to compete in Rome. The next stop is the Grand Slam in Paris until the end of May, with the two-time finalist currently without a place in the main draw.

A futile battle for the highest level

According to the newspaper's report, it is said that poor results and futile struggle at the highest level are what prompted Thiem's ​​decision to end his career. Thiem must only play in selected tournaments until the fall and have a bye to the home tournament in Wiener Stadtthal in October. A request from was not responded to by Thiem's ​​administration.

In October 2019, Dominic Thiem celebrated one of his most important successes in the domestic tournament in Wiener Stadtthal.

His last tournament win was at the US Open

If there is a real farewell in Vienna, Thiem will leave at the place where he celebrated one of his most emotional victories in 2019. Back then, he won the Erste Bank Open in front of a sell-out crowd, fulfilling a childhood dream. A year later, his greatest sporting success was to come. In New York, Thiem became the second Austrian after Thomas Muster to win a singles title in a Grand Slam tournament. In the US Open final, he defeated German Alexander Zverev in five sets. This will be the last of his 17 wins in the tournament so far.

Tim is currently training at his father Wolfgang's academy in Traiskirchen (Baden region). A few days ago, his coach and long-time supporter, Gunther Bresnick, spoke up and offered Thiem his help. Despite the unpleasant breakup between the two a few years ago, Bresnik is willing to help Tim out of the woods. However, this offer was rejected by Dominic Thiem.
