Some fans who even know about his parents have no idea that the US Open 2020 winner also has a younger brother named Moritz Thiem, who is also a tennis player. He is 21 at the moment, and Dominic has claimed on numerous occasions that he has learned a lot of things from him.

Moritz recently achieved his career-high ATP ranking of 1225 in 2019. Standing 5 feet and 8 inches tall, he made his ATP main draw debut at the Generali Open 2019 in Kitzbuhel in the doubles draw with partner Nicolas Massu.

He also believes that he can easily come into the top 100 players’ list in the future if he continues to work hard. And with Dominic to guide him, Moritz can surely achieve this objective and perhaps even go beyond.
