Dominic Thiem enjoys nature in new UniCredit Bank commercial

All the commercials that Thiem did for UniCredit Bank involved a part of nature. The Austrian is a vocal supporter for eco-friendly systems to be put in place across tennis as he mentioned several times that tennis, as a sport, needs to do better for environment conservation.

Coming to the latest UniCredit Bank commercial, Thiem could be seen finishing a run and takes up the opportunity of enjoying the nature all alone. He goes skinny dipping and enjoys the sun before he was interrupted by a bunch of teenage hikers.

The commercial reveals a fun side to Dominic Thiem and also promotes his idea of sustainability as UniCredit Bank introduces a ‘Mega Card Go Green’ account for people under 20 years.

The advertisement did definitely show a different side of Dominic Thiem. Coming to Thiem’s tour performances this year, he managed to reach the semi-finals of Madrid Masters, where he lost to Alexander Zverev in straight sets. It was the Austrian’s best result on tour.

Just like the Big-3, Dominic Thiem has been expanding his reputation as a tennis super star off court.
